I am a paleoanthropologist at the Faculty of Archaeology in Leiden University. I'm interested in the use of plants by early hominins and humans prior to agriculture, and how the use and processing of these plants may have shaped our evolutionary trajectory.
I am a curator of the prehistory collections of the National Museum of Archeology of Catalonia (Barcelona) and associate lecturer at the Autonomous University of Barcelona where I teach subjects related to technology from an experimental point of view.
I became interested in EXARC activities during my MA with the University of Bradford, where I started looking more into the textile and cremation industries, particularly the role that smell performs within settlement archaeology.
I'm an archaeologist and a postgraduate student at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore di Milano specializing in Early Medieval Archaeology and Landscape Archaeology; I'm particularly interested in longobard material culture and I have a long experience in archaeological excavations.

As founder and the first chairperson, I represent the WEAG (Workgroup of Experimental Archaeology Groningen). This is a student initiative of the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, founded in January 2019. At this moment, the group has 20 members and is still expanding.
My main hobbies are experimental archaeology and historical reenacting of the early Middle Ages in the territory of Kievan Rus. My experiments were based on horn and bone and stone processing, primitive woodworking, fire breeding, and primitive tooling experiments.
