Currículum Vitae

I was born in Tortosa in 1964 and educated in Tivenys and Tortosa. In 1983 I moved to Tarragona to begin my university education at the Escola de Magisteri (teacher education college) (1983-86) before taking a Degree in Geography and History (1986-89). In 1994 I joined the URV's Department of History and Geography as an adjunct lecturer before becoming an assistant lecturer in 2004. Since 2010 I have been a senior lecturer in the Department of History and History of Art in the Faculty of Arts.

In these roughly 30 years as a lecturer at the URV I have taught core, compulsory and optional subjects of the Licentiate in History, the Licentiate in History of Art, the Bachelor's Degree in History, the Bachelor's Degree in History of Art and the Bachelor's Degree in History of Art and Archaeology. I have also participated in doctoral programmes, postgraduate programmes (URV Undergraduate Degree in Archaeology) and the Interuniversity Master's Degree in Classical Archaeology (offered jointly by the URV, the UAB and ICAC). During these years I have also directed or co-directed six doctoral theses.

Regarding my experience in management, I was Coordinator of the Bachelor's Degree in History from 2012 to 2022. Between 2018 and 2022 I was responsible for the Internal Quality Assurance System (IQAS) of the Faculty of Arts. I have represented the URV on various committees, including the Archaeology and Palaeontology Research Committee of the autonomous government of Catalonia, the Governing Body of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of the Terres de l'Ebre Inventory Project, and the Advisory Council for the Battle of the Ebro Memorial.

I am an archaeologist by vocation who specializes in the Protohistory of the Mediterranean. This interest has enabled me to become the leading researcher for the Protohistory and Archaeology Research Group (GRESEPIA) and a member of the consolidated research group Perspectives of the Mediterranean in Antiquity: from East to West, from Protohistory to Late Antiquity (MIRMED). My research during these years is reflected in over a hundred publications, comprising indexed articles, books, book chapters, and conference presentations and communications, as well as my work as the director of numerous regional, national and international competitive projects and contracts.
