Former researchers and collaborators

Andrés Aliaga Martínez (aliaga13@gmail.com)
Andrés (PhD 2015, Universitat de Barcelona) studied the formation and alteration models of dental microwear patterns, including dietary and taphonomic factors, and its implications on the study of hominoid primates diet.

Mohammad Alrousan (Rousan78@yahoo.es)
Mohammad (PhD 2009, Universitat de Barcelona) studied the Mesolithic-Neolithic transition in the Near East, and the biological implications of the shift in subsistence strategies through the analysis of dental morphology and dietary habits of human populations in the Mediterranean area 12,000-5,000 BP. He is interested in dental microwear analysis and dietary reconstruction in human populations, as well as tooth morphology and function. Mohammad is currently an Assistant professor and Chairman in the Department of Anthropology at the Yarmouk University, Jordan. ResearchGate profile.

Júlia Arias Martorell (j.arias.martorell@gmail.com)
Júlia (PhD 2014, Universitat de Barcelona) did her dissertation on anatomical adaptations of the glenohumeral joint: evolutionary morphology related to locomotory patterns and the human bipedalism. She is currently a Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at University of Kent.

Gaëlle Bello Hellegouarch (gaellebh@yahoo.com)
Gaëlle (PhD 2014, Universitat de Barcelona) studied the anatomical and functional adaptations of the rotator cuff muscles in relation to the different body patterns and forms of locomotion in the Order of Primates. ResearchGate profile.

Aroa is doing her dissertation on anatomical adaptations of the wrist to the different forms of locomotion in the order of the primates, supervised by JM Potau, at the University of Barcelona. ResearchGate profile.

Laia Dotras (laiadotras@gmail.com)
Laia (M.S. Primatology 2009, Universitat de Barcelona) studied interproximal wear related to aging in Amboseli baboons.
She is currently the President of the Jane Goodall Institute-Spain.

Mónica Gómez (monik87000@gmail.com)
Mónica is doing her dissertation on anatomic and functional study of the deltoid muscle in primats: adaptations of the different types of locomotion, supervised by JM Potau, at the University of Barcelona. ResearchGate profile.

Katarzyna Górka
Katarzyna (PhD 2016; Universitat de Barcelona) studied dental morphology and dental wear variability in traditional human populations. ResearchGate profile.

Beatriz Pinilla (b.pinilla@ub.edu)
Beatriz is interested in hominins behavior and ecological-technological adaptations. She has studied Neanderthals’ and atomically Modern Humans’ origins and evolution. In 2012 she obtained the PhD (Universitat de Barcelona) by studying the diet and adaptation in Middle and Upper Pleistocene european hominins. 

Josep Maria Potau Ginés (jpotau@ub.edu)
Josep Maria is a full Professor at the Unit of Human Anatomy and Embryology, University of Barcelona. He was the principal investigator of the coordinated project CGL2014-52611-C2-2-P. He is interested on the adaptation of the musculoskeletal system of the forelimb of primates to different modes of transport. ResearchGate profile.
