Educational Background

  • Ph. D., 2013, Earth Sciences, Universitat de Barcelona: Paleomagnetism and thermochronology in Tertiary syntectonic sediments of the South-Central Pyrenees: Chronostratigraphy, kinematic and exhumation constraints. Advisors: Josep Anton Muñoz and Miguel Garcés.
  • DEA, 2001, Earth Sciences, Universitat de Barcelona
  • B. Sc., 1998, Geology, Universitat de Barcelona


Research Interests

Magnetostratigraphic dating of sedimentary successions applied to basin analysis, biochronological calibration, paleoenvironmental evolution.
Paleomagnetism applied to the study of orogenic belts and plate tectonics.
Archaeomagnetic dating of archaeological remains.
I’ve carried out studies in the Pyrenees, Betic chain, Ebro, Duero and Tajo basins, Canary Islands, Zagros thrust and fold belt and Antarctica.
