About Me

I recently migrated all the content from this blog to my new website!

www.spatialtech-humanities.com, I’m looking forward to see you there.

I’m a Mexican archaeologist. I studied at the National School of Anthropology and History in Mexico City. I worked for the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) for several years, I was head of the cartography unit of the INAH-Chiapas Centre and I developed several projects within the National Coordination of Archaeology. I continued my studies at the University of Southampton receiving a Master of Science in Archaeological Computing (Spatial Technologies) in 2007. My studies were supported by the National Council of Science and Technology of Mexico (CONACYT) and I graduated with distinction.

I hold a PhD from the University of Southampton and my research was also funded by CONACYT. My research is focused on the development of new theories and methodologies using spatial analysis and innovative computational techniques to understand human movement and travelling during prehistoric times. I’m involved in several projects in Spain and Mexico looking at the mobility of Late Antique societies in the Balearic Islands, Tarragona and Barcelona.  As a member of the Archaeological Computing Research Group (ACRG) at Southampton I presented my work in several international conferences and published several articles.

I was recently appointed as Research Fellow at Lancaster University in the project “Spatial Humanities: Text, GIS & Places”.

I will be working soon on the implementation of GIS and other spatial methodologies for the analysis of historical and literature sources of the Lake District in the UK. In this project I will be developing methodologies to understand the perception of place and space, and the impact of the landscape in historical narratives among others.

I will also continue my research on the theory and implementation of Cost Surface Analysis, using Geographic Information Systems to evaluate the patterns of movement of the pastoral societies of Western Sierra Morena (Andalucia, Spain) during the Chalcolithic and Bronze Age.

I’m very interested in interdisciplinary collaboration so please feel free to contact me anytime!
