Key Research Interests

  • Study of pastoral activities through high resolution techniques: phytoliths, ash pseudomorphs, spherulites and FTIR
  • Study of dung deposits
  • Combined analyses of phytoliths in thin sections and bulk samples
  • The effect of fire over biogenic microremains (i.e., phytoliths, ash pseudomorphs and fecal spherulites)
  • Post depositional processes affecting archaeological contexts
  • Study of agricultural terraces through Microarchaeology
