Specialist Protohistory of the Iberian Peninsula, specifically in Tartessos. Director of the archaeological excavations of the building under barrow of Cancho Roano, Cerro Borreguero and Casas del Turuñuelo, studies the society of Tartessos through the architecture. Also I work on the “stelae of warrior” in the west of the Iberian Peninsula and its relationship with the territory.

PhD in History (specialty in Prehistory and Archaeology) by the Complutense University of Madrid in 2000, I'm working at the Merida Institute of Archaeology from 2006 as a posdoc researcher, and from 2007 as a permanent member. I devoted the first stages of my scientific activity to the Iron Age of Southern Iberia. From the beginning this work has been oriented to an archaeological approach to the landscape, with the aim of developing a human geography of past communities with two main axes of research. On one hand, from the point of view of historical analysis, it has been focused on the transition between Protohistory and the Roman world in the Mediterranean area, without forgetting the vocation of studying the long-term processes inherent to this type of work. On the other hand methodologically I have devoted my efforts to strengthen the role of non-invasive systems such as remote sensing, aerial survey and geophysics, and especially surface survey. I'm interested in assessing the reliability of such studies, experimenting with procedures and results as well as its ability to capture the complexity of the use of space across the landscape. I have also worked in the articulation of all these processes through the application of geospatial technologies. In this sense, I co-direct a postgraduate course which is done in conjunction with the INCIPIT and held annually since 2006.
With regard to my scientific goals in the long term, these will focus on promoting the development of a research on agrarian spaces that combines historical interpretation with the contributions, interests and objectives from other disciplines, highlighting the synergies with environmental sciences, agronomy and high precision agriculture. I also intend to encourage the development of comparative studies on the
transformation of the landscape at a macro-regional scale regarding the Romanization process.
