Short biography: 

I work in the Quantitative Archaeology Lab at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, as a post-doc affiliated. I focus my research on understanding the relationship between space and society through the use of Geostatistics, Spatial Analysis and other quantitative methods. I am also interested in mathematical formalisation of settlement and population patterns towards understanding their spatial structures. These are four fields which I am currently developing a methodological approach for: - Non-Euclidean Geostatistics - Mathematical Formalisation Processes - Artificial Neural Networks Modelling - Agent-based Models Simulation I mainly focused the implementation of these methods in the study of the medieval Islamisation process in the Western Mediterranean. Therefore, I directed several archaeological survey projects in the Mediterranean watershed of the Iberian Peninsula. I am currently working on fixing a protocol in order to analyse the main spatial features of medieval Islamic societies as indicators of their historical transformations.
