Laia Colomer is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow with extensive professional and academic experiences in archaeological heritage management, public archaeology and applied heritage. Her current work focus on the uses of heritage for the wellbeing of migrants (i.e. identity, belonging, affection & mobility). At present, her research concerns the understanding of how new forms of contemporary cultural heritage might develop responding to the deterritorialization of people and cultures in a globalized world.

Educated in Barcelona (PhD. in Prehistoric Archaeology, UAB) and the United Kingdom (MA in Public Archaeology, UCL), she has combined an academic career in The Netherlands, the UK, and Spain, with a professional career in heritage management in Spain and Italy, including in both paths several European Commission projects. In the field of heritage management, she has been working on gender, education and archaeology, the management of urban archaeological sites, and the politics of religious conflict in archaeological heritage.
