SANTIAGO-MARRERO, CARLOS

PhD Candidate
CaSEs / UPF


I am a PhD student in paleoethnobotany/archaeobotany. Through my research, I seek to understand past human interactions with their landscapes, farming strategies, and foodways. This interest has allowed me to research different geographical areas and temporalities in the Caribbean and the Middle East.  Currently, I’m working with the Çatalhöyük Research Project in Turkey as part of the plant micro-remains group. My project aims to trace the spatial distribution of tasks related to food preparation, consumption, and other plants processing activities at the household’s levels using phytoliths, starches, and chemical analyses.
