Welcome to Valéria Romano, presently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Alicante, Spain. Valéria is back to the DEPE and will be mainly working on human cultural evolution. Her research focuses on the interface between socio-spatial structure and cultural transmission using the archaeological record.

Congratulations

Congratulations to Valéria Romano and the Paleodem team (Javier Fernández-López de Pablo and Magda Gómez-Puche, http://paleodem.eu/), which got the Summer Course "Introduction to Modelling in Archaeology" selected by the Rafael Altamira call - University of Alicante, Spain.
