Research Interests
Funerary Practices

Archaeologist, bioanthropolgist and head of the bio-anthropology department at Era Arqueologia, S.A. After a degree and Master thesis in Prehistoric archaeology at the University of Porto (2005) I concluded my PhD in Physical Anthropology In the University of Coimbra (2018). My research focuses on a number of themes, including funerary practices and architectures  amongst  the societies of Late Prehistoric Iberia. On these topics I have carried out fieldwork in the southern Portugal, mainly at the Perdigões Archaeological enclosure, in Reguengos de Monsaraz, Évora.
