I am a cultural landscape archaeologist and theorist whose current areas of research involve monuments, landscapes, astronomy, depositional behaviour and the belief systems of ‘prehistoric’ peoples. More precisely, the existing geographical coverage of my specialist research is the British Isles and Europe with a particular current focus on British Isles and Galicia. This current focus is the basis of my Marie Sklowdowska Curie Research Fellowship: SHoW: SHARED WORLDS: revealing prehistoric shared worlds along Europe ´s Atlantic Façade. My works involve the development and implementation of geographical information systems (GIS) as well as the application of statistics and other mathematically-oriented approaches used in astrophysics.
