Department of Archaeology



I obtained my BSc in Biotechnology from the Polytechnical University of Madrid and MSc in Bioinformatics at the University of Copenhagen, while working in medical transcriptomics. Eventually, I got involved in projects that required the application of bioinformatic skills to large dataset in palaeogenomics and palaeoproteomics. I then worked as a DNRF and Beast to Crafts Research Assistant in computational palaeoproteomics at the University of Copenhagen.

My first contact with archaeology applied bioinformatics, brought me to the McDonald Institute to start a Marie Skłodowska-Curie PhD within the PlaCe ITN project in September 2021.


My research interests are the study of protein decay processes using mass spectrometry and computational proteomics.

My research project centres on the relationship between the inorganic matrix of amphorae and proteins conserved in it in the eastern Mediterranean. How we can extract those proteins, how well preserved they are in different contexts and what they can tell us about storage, transport and culinary practices are the main questions.
