Tutor, Ambrose College

I am the Junior Research Fellow Mougins Museum in Classical Art and Material Culture at Wolfson College, and was previously the Research Assistant for the Beazley Archive Pottery Database at the Classical Art Research Centre.

Before moving to Oxford, I held a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Edinburgh funded by the Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tecnología (FECYT). I received my PhD (Doctor Europaea) from the University of León, Spain, with the dissertation The Snake in the Ancient Greek World: Myth, Rite and Image (2010). I have an MPhil in History of Art from the University of León (2008) and an MPhil in Archaeology and Heritage from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (2011).

In 2010-2011, I worked as a translator at the European Parliament in Luxemburg, and in 2008-2009 I was an Academic Visitor and DAAD Fellow at the Institut für klassische Archäologie of the University of Heidelberg. I have been a Tytus Scholar at the Department of Classical Studies of the University of Cincinnati (US) in the summer 2017.

My research focuses on the art and archaeology of ancient Greece, with an emphasis on vase-painting, animal symbolism, the contextual study of Athenian pottery, and funerary customs from the Archaic to the Late Classical periods. I am most interested in the regions of Attica, Macedonia and Boeotia, and I currently work on Greek material from the Iberian Peninsula.
