New postdoc for the automated detection and modelling of burial sites!

We are glad to announce that we got a new postdoc grant in the preliminary resolution of the 2023 call Juan de la Cierva call (Ministerio de Ciencia, Innovación y Universidades)! Dr. Sònia Carbonell Pastor will join us at the end of the year and will be supervised by Hèctor A. Orengo.

About Sònia

Her research will focus on the analysis of funerary materiality from a landscape perspective, exploring the relationship between necropolises and their surroundings using landscape archaeology and computational archaeology techniques such as machine learning and deep learning. The aim is to use these methods for the automated detection and modelling of burial sites, and to apply them in case studies to define specific funerary landscapes in space and time. 

PhD in Archaeology from the University of Alicante. Her research focuses on the study of the funerary world of Menorca throughout the 1st millennium BCE, specifically on the architecture and spatial configuration of artificial rock-cut tombs necropolises. Theoretically, she has trained within the framework of Ameroiberian Social Archaeology, and practically, she is specialized in digital applications such as aerial and terrestrial photogrammetry, laser scanning, LIDAR, and the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS).

We are looking forward to welcoming her in the team!

Juan de la Cierva’s call is funded by MICIU/AEI /10.13039/501100011033 and the FSE+.
