I am interested in different analytical methods used in archaeology such as stable isotope analyses, aDNA research, and palynological studies. My area of interest is the Canary Islands, and my PhD dissertation is centered around paleo-mobility and ancient diets of past indigenous populations from the archipelago. Currently, I am in the process of developing a baseline of bioavailable strontium stable isotopes for some of the islands in this region.
Other aspects of archaeological research include osteology, excavation of burial structures, and the use of geospatial tools to interpret sites.

Research Projects:
Developing a bioavailable baseline of stable isotopes of strontium in the Canary Islands; Stable isotopic analyses from dental and bone tissues from two individuals buried at Pozo Izquierdo Necropolis, Gran Canaria Island, Spain.
