Doctor by the Universidad de Cádiz with the thesis El arte rupestre paleolítico del extremo sur peninsular. Los contextos gráficos del litoral y las sierras del interior gaditano 2022. Supervised by Dr. José Ramos Muñoz, Dr. Marcos García Diez.

I have had great regularity and continuity in projects and publications linked especially to the following lines of research: - Studies of Prehistoric Archaeology in contexts of the Campiña Litoral, Atlantic Band of Cadiz and North Africa. - Studies of Prehistoric Archaeology in the mountainous environments of the Geohistoric Region of the Strait of Gibraltar. Sierra de Grazalema, Sierra de Ronda, Sierra de las Nieves, Terrazas del Guadalete and Valle del Guadiaro. - Palaeontological studies of brecciated areas in the Sierra de Grazalema. - Documentation and reproduction of prehistoric graphic contexts in caves in the south of the Iberian Peninsula, a thematic line of specialisation leading to the award of the title of Doctor with International Mention. - Work on the documentation of palaeo-speleological techniques in prehistoric records linked to Prehistoric Art. In this line, my CV shows a clear balance between research, lectures and other activities related to both thematic fields. I obtained my degree at the University of Cádiz in 2015, did postgraduate studies at the University of the Basque Country specialising in Quaternary and Human Footprints and obtained my doctoral thesis, with a grade of Excellent -10- cum laude, at the University of Cádiz under the supervision of Professor José Ramos and Marcos García in 2022. During my training period I worked with the PAI-HUM 440 Research Group (to which I still belong today), with Professor José Ramos. There is also an evident regularity and continuity in terms of scientific publications, in direct correspondence with the research projects, as most of them are the result of basic research. I have published numerous articles related to prehistoric archaeology and rock art in journals indexed in different repositories: Journal Citation Reports (JCR), Scimago Journal and Country Rank (SJR), Latindex, DICE, as well as in other national repositories such as CIRC or Dialnet. I have published 3 full-length books, 2 of which I am the first author. I have published more than forty book chapters in both national and international publishers, including Cambridge Scholar, Almuzara Editorial, Arqueología Monografías and Editorial UCA. I would like to highlight my inclusion as a member in 3 research projects financed through competitive concurrence, both at national and regional level. Likewise, I have been responsible for the drafting of numerous administrative files of a patrimonial nature (inscription BIC-Patrimonial Zone of enclaves with graphic manifestations) on behalf of the Junta de Andalucía (Andalusian Regional Government). All this has allowed my participation, both as first author and co-author, in scientific events of various kinds (lectures, invited lectures, workshops, book presentations, etc.). More than twenty of these contributions have had a marked international character, within the framework of recognised entities such as UISPP, Neanderthal Museum or Hugo Obermaier Society. Finally, other merits include membership of the Editorial Board of the journal RAMPAS, participation in numerous excavation campaigns at various sites in the far south of the Iberian Peninsula and North Africa, and the management of archaeological research projects.
