Manuel’s research focuses on the transdisciplinary methodological aspects of archaeology, with core areas including remote sensing, archaeological conservation, GIS, materials science, spatial analysis, and geoarchaeology.
As the Remote Sensing and Digital Archaeology Specialist in the isoTROPIC group, Manuel is responsible for setting up a remote sensing workflow including laser scanning and photogrammetry, to be applied in numerous contexts around the globe.
Manuel obtained a PhD (with high distinction) in Archaeology from Évora University and a PhD in Materials Science and Technology from the Polytechnic University of Turin as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Early Stage Researcher. Previously, Manuel received an MSc (cum laude) in Digital Archaeology from Leiden University, after completing his MA (with high distinction) and BA (with distinction) in Archaeological Conservation at Antwerp University. Over the past decade, Manuel has conducted fieldwork and research across the Mediterranean, Southeast and Western Asia, Northwestern and Central Europe, and Latin America.
