Abridged curriculum

I am a paleoanthropologist and vertebrate paleontologist focused on evolutionary paleobiology. I obtained my Ph.D. in Biology in 2005 (Universitat de Barcelona) with a dissertation focused on the origin and evolution of great apes and humans, carried out at the Institut de Paleontologia M. Crusafont thanks to a fellowship from the Generalitat de Catalunya (1999–2002). After a few years (2003-2006) working for the private sector (paleontological services), I rejoined academia with a ‘Beatriu de Pinós’ postdoctoral contract (2006–2008) at the Biological Anthropology Unit of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). Subsequently I was senior postdoc visiting researcher (2008–2009) at the Università di Firenze (Italy), until I became a ‘Ramón y Cajal’ researcher of the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (ICP) in late 2019. During that period I was also visiting researcher (2012–2013) at the Università di Torino (Italy) and undertook shorter stays in other foreign institutions (American Museum of Natural History and Stony Brook University, New York, USA). At the ICP I lead my own research group since 2012; I was also appointed director of the ICP in 2017 and currently I further coordinate the three research groups of the Cenozoic Research Area. My current research foci include: paleobiology, phylogeny and evolution of catarrhine primates and other vertebrates from the Neogene and Quaternary of Europe; and vertebrate paleobiodiversity dynamics during with emphasis on faunal turnovers in relation to paleoenvironmental change.

My international visibility and leadership within my field is best attested by my role as co-Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Human Evolution (the leading paleoanthropological journal) since 2017, although I am an Editorial Board member (as Associate Editor) since 2013. I have also reviewed papers for the most renowned journals in paleontology, evolutionary anthropology and multidisciplinary sciences. In 2013 received the Program I3 certificate (Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad) in recognition of an outstanding research trajectory, and in 2016 I was awarded the prize for the best scientific article by the Societat Catalana de Biologia. I am accredited as full professor in sciences in Catalonia and as full professor in anthropology and paleontology in Italy, and have a longstanding teaching experience in university masters at the UAB. I also have a vast experience in the direction of paleontological fieldwork campaigns, such as those in Abocador de Can Mata (middle Miocene), Can Llobateres (late Miocene) and Vallparadís (Pleistocene), leading to the discovery of many important fossil primate remains (including the skeleton of the Miocene great ape Pierolapithecus catalaunicus). In 2015 I led the publication in Science of another new hominoid genus, Pliobates cataloniae, which had a great repercussion among the media. In total, I have described 36 new taxa, including 6 genera and 12 (sub)species of fossil vertebrates. I have participated in many research projects over the years, being the principal investigator of two R+I projects funded by the Spanish Government, a consolidated research group of the Generalitat de Catalunya, and other projects financed by the National Geographic Society and the Generalitat de Catalunya. Currently I participate in a European project (ITN) on paleoproteomics aimed to retrieve molecular data from fossil primates.

Regarding scientific outputs, my publication record includes 122 papers in SCI journals (indexed by the Journal Citation Reports), resulting in an h-index of 28 (Scopus), 26 (WOS) and 32 (GoogleScholar). 85 (70%) of these papers have been published in first quartile (Q1) journals (69 [57%] in first decile), including renowned multidisciplinary ones (Science, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA, Nature Communications), as well as the most prestigious journals in the fields of anthropology (Journal of Human Evolution, Evolutionary Anthropology, American Journal of Physical Anthropology), paleontology (Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, Journal of Systematic Palaeontology), biology (Proceedings of the Royal Society B, eLife), zoology (Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society, Journal of Mammalian Evolution) and multidisciplinary geociences (Quaternary Science Reviews). He has also published 61 additional papers in other journals and conference proceedings, a book, 9 book chapters, and 20 science dissemination writings. Moreover, he has coauthored 185 contributions to 87 scientific meetings (125 to 63 international meetings and 60 to 24 Iberian ones), leading to 56 abstracts published in SCI journals and 103 additional abstracts in other journals and conference proceedings. He has further directed four finished PhD dissertations and multiple master theses.
