My main research interest is the relationship between human evolution and stone tools at the level of hand and wrist morphology, being Homo floresiensis (Liang Bua, Indonesia) my case study.
My line of research involves the application of biomechanics and musculoskeletal models to the archaeological record as a new methodology for knowledge. Thanks to this approach I can observe the movements when knapping stones and study the forces suffered by the human body as a structure, this being dependent on bone morphology and the arrangement of the articular surfaces.
