After finishing a degree in Archaeology in 2010 (University of Porto) and a Master’s degree in Archaeobotany in 2012 (University of Porto, CIBIO) I have joined several research projects in Archaeobotany within CIBIO’s Environmental Archaeology research group.

My research activity focuses on the characterization of the relations between past human communities and their environmental surroundings - specifically vegetal landscapes - through the analysis of charred and waterlogged wooden remains recovered in archaeological sites.

Funded by a FCT grant, my PhD program started in September 2015 and centers on the study of samples from several late Iron Age and Early Roman archaeological sites in NW Iberia, such as Monte Mozinho, Bracara Augusta, Tongóbriga and Sabor Valley, with the objective of understanding how these populations managed and used wooden resources in different contexts such as funeral pyres, fireplaces, hearts, ovens and furnaces.
