Marisa Heras-Lózar was born in 1996 in Seville, Spain. As long as she can remember, her great passions have been writing and acquiring knowledge of the human being in all its breadth, which led her to become deeply interested not only in anthropology and history, but also in its divulgation and teaching. For this reason, she graduated in Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Seville, while also studying a degree in Geography and History at the National University of Distance Education (UNED).
With the aim of participating in the dissemination of knowledge, her way through academic and working experience led her to develop in various fields, such as scientific divulgation on history and society as editor-in-chief and writer in some digital publications, as well as in radio media as a broadcaster and content manager or artistic assistant in historical audiovisual productions.
Likewise, her everlasting interest in our origins as humans led her to collaborate in archaeological excavations, focusing her career towards physical and forensic anthropology with a renewed vision, using 3D techniques as a way of learning about our present through the link between our past and future. For these reasons, her curriculum has been oriented not only around classic topics such as Egyptology and hieroglyphic writing —her main field of historical study—, but as to new ways of learning like 3D virtualization of cultural heritage and digital anthropology surrounding the latest narrative forms of digital identity.
Currently, she continues her education at the University of Granada as a research internship in the Department of Legal Medicine, Toxicology and Forensic Anthropology, combining this experience with some training in 3D software for the reconstruction of historical figures and settings. In essence, her personal and professional purpose is to promote and foster understanding of what makes us human beyond institution's limits, working all together to open the doors of knowledge to those who, as herself, want to cross them.
Her main specialty areas are:
• Physical Anthropology and Archaeology
• Egyptology and hieroglyphic writing
• 3D Reconstruction and Modelling of Cultural Heritage
• Contemporary Social Anthropology
• Digital Content Creation and Management
