Currenty I am writing my Thesis "La transición del Paleolítico Medio al Superior en el contexto de la evolución disciplinar del Paleolítico. Análisis historiográfico y perspectivas actuales de un debate sempiterno". I am also teaching some archaeology classes at the University, mainly related to Prehistoric Archaeology and Stone Age lithics. Others projects in which I am currently involved have to do with the Middle and Upper Paleolithic record of the central area of Spain (the Meseta). Results will be published soon!
