Forseadiscovery, Marie Curie Fellowship. As a PhD student we aim to finish within 3 years a PhD in Iberian Ships. In this project we work on a multidisciplinary environment with different backgrounds, such as dendrochronology, archaeology, historians and other specialists of science such as molecular, isotopic and anatomical researchers in wood. We are preparing a database, with key construction features, a glossary of key words and GIS layer on Iberian shipwrecks. We are having formation to improve our skill and participating in disseminating the project as well through talks. By the end of these 3 years we will be ready to undertake further research on a post doctoral research and participate in projects to protect and promote the maritime heritage.

We are interested in the Basque seafarer's activities on the modern age throughout the world, but mainly the atlantic.

Our main research interests are two. Our MA dissertation was a paper in basque that is translated as “Beyond lands and oceans boarders: Basque seafarer's journeys across the Atlantic Ocean, 15-18th centuries”. Our second main interest is the Iberian Atlantic shipbuilding, our title for our PhD is “The Atlantic shipbuilding and the new transition in the Iberian Cantabric tradition, 1560-1680”

We haven't published yet, but we have written a papers so far, “Beyond lands and oceans boarders: Basque seafarer's journeys across the Atlantic Ocean, 15-18th centuries”.
