Silvia Valenzuela-Lamas. Milà i Fontanals Institution (CSIC). Maîtrise in Zooarchaeology (2003) and PhD in Archeology from the University of Barcelona (2008). Between 2009 and 2011 she had a Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (FCT) postdoctoral fellowship at the Universidade de Lisboa (Portugal), and from 2011 to 2014 she held a Marie Curie postdoctoral contract ('Intra European Marie Curie Fellowship') at the University of Sheffield (UK). Since 2017 she is leading an ERC-Starting Grant project at the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC-IMF, Barcelona) to analyse how economic changes shaped livestock production from Late Prehistory to post-Classical times. She uses zooarchaeology and various techniques (e.g. isotopes, geometric morphometrics, dental microwear, ancient DNA) to characterise human-animal interactions in the past and analyse changes through time.
