First Year In the Program


My interest is on the use of analytical methods in archaeology with a special focus in stable isotope analyses. Another field I am studying is ancient genomics, specifically to answer questions of peopling of the Canary Islands. Additionally, for my dissertation, I am exploring questions on landscape use, economic activities and mobility of ancient Canary aboriginals. I am actively developing a baseline of bioavailable strontium isotopes in the archipelago in order to compare data with archaeological human remains that I have obtained from Tenerife and Gran Canaria islands.

Other branches and geographical areas of archaeology I am interested in include mortuary archaeology, osteology, archaeopalynology, and Andean archaeology.
