I am a Geologist and Palaeontologist specialised in Sedimentology, Stratigraphy, Vertebrate Taphonomy and Geoarchaeology, with keen interest in Cenozoic vertebrate sites, both archaeological and palaeontological.

My greatest interest as a researcher is the symbiosis between Taphonomy and Geoarchaeology, since the combination of these two disciplines provides excellent tools to analyse site formation.

DigApp and TaphonomApp

We have created two new paleontological and archaeological mobile applications, DigApp and TaphonomApp!

DigApp is intended to aid data collection in archaeological and palaeontological excavations. Online, Offline and an “Easy to Use” version of DigApp have been created to fit all needs.

TaphonomApp has been created in order to assist taphonomists while carrying out taphonomical analyses, making data collection quicker, homogeneous and overall more efficient.

DigApp and TaphonomApp are free and open access software, and can be easily modified by the user. These apps are made open source and free of charge subject to the condition that the original source is referenced in all publications which utilise it.
