RESEARCH OUTPUTS. Coauthored over 17 publications included in the Science Citation Index and in other over 50 scientific publications. Attendance at international conferences such as Annual Meeting of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology (Bristol, UK, 2009; Berlin, Germany, 2014), 28th IAS Meeting of Sedimentology (2011), 10th International Symposium on Mesozoic Terrestrial Ecosystems and Biota (Teruel, Spain, 2009), EAVP Extraordinary Meeting (Brussels, Belgium, 2009), Congreso Latinoamericano de Paleontología (Perú, 2016) and Jornadas internacionales sobre paleontología de dinosaurios y su entorno (Burgos, Spain: 2007, 2010, 2013).

FIELD RESEARCH EXPERIENCE. Co-led and led of the paleontological prospections (including screen-washing works) in Lower Cretaceous outcrops from Teruel and Zaragoza provinces (Spain): five annual campaigns from 2008 to 2011, and 2013. It resulted in the discovery of around 140 new vertebrate fossil sites. This work has led to document a high diversity of vertebrates and recover mammal teeth that have been holotypes of the dryolestid Crusafontia amoae and the spalacotherid Aliaga molinensis. Co-led of the paleontological excavacions in the macrovertebrate fossil site of “Camino de la Algecira”, Ladruñán, Teruel, Spain: four annual campaigns from 2008 to 2011. This fossil site is a vertebrate skeletal concentration with the disarticulated bones and teeth of several dinosaur individuals. Participant in paleontological surveys in the Late Cretaceous of different outcrops of the Pyrenees mountains. The prospections in 2010 and 2011 resulted in the discovery of the type-localities of the Maastrichtian crocodyliforms Arenysuchus gascabadiolorum and Allodaposuchus subjuniperus.
