Curriculum vitae

I am a Spanish doctoral student at the University of Helsinki (2019-). My doctoral thesis aims to study the Royal Shipyard of Barcelona and the construction of galleys during the sixteenth century.

I obtained my BA in History (2009-13) and my MA in Early Modern History (2014-15) at the University of Barcelona. I have worked as a Researcher at the Maritime Museum of Barcelona (2016-18) and as a Research Assistant at the University of Helsinki (2018-19) and I have also collaborated with the Norwegian Maritime Museum (2018).

My research focuses on Early Modern shipbuilding and shipbuilders, timber for shipbuilding, Spanish maritime warfare and Nordic-Baltic connections with the Iberian Peninsula, Spanish-Swedish relations.
