Giulia Uccheddu graduated in Cultural Heritage and Archaeology from the University of Cagliari (Italy) in 2018. Subsequently, she specialized by obtaining a Master's degree in Physical and Forensic Anthropology in 2020 and another in Archaeology in 2023, both from the University of Granada (UGR).

Her fascination with physical anthropology began during an Erasmus scholarship at the University of León, where she developed her Bachelor's Thesis titled "Anthropological study of human remains from the medieval site of Barrejo (Cordiñanes, Spain)." She continued her trajectory with a second Erasmus Traineeship, which provided her with the opportunity to work at the company Atlas Arqueología y Patrimonio, based in Seville.

In her desire to explore pre-Columbian anthropology, she moved to Mexico, where she studied the Maya collection in Tulum at the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), leading to her presentation at the 46th Annual Meeting of the Human Biology Association with the study "Nutrition and infection: a key to interpreting the living conditions in the heterarchical society of the Maya of Tulum, Mexico."

It is worth noting her collaboration with the Anthropology Service of SABAP (Superintendence of Archaeology, Fine Arts and Landscape for the Metropolitan City of Cagliari and the provinces of Oristano and South Sardinia). Here, she became interested in the potential of 3D technology, leading her to conduct the seminar "Anthropology 2.0: 3D Reconstruction through Photogrammetry" at the Industrial University of Santander (Colombia).

Additionally, she participated in the European project Culture.EDU, which uses 3D technology for the cultural revitalization of lesser-known sites in Bulgaria and Italy. In the research group "Biological Anthropology and Human Paleoecology" at UGR, she carried out a study that won the Santander Research Initiation Scholarship, focusing on the geometric morphometrics of osteoarchaeological remains through 3D scanning to deduce behavioral and cultural patterns.

Currently, she starts at IPNA as a JAE Intro 2023 fellow from the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC-IPNA), as part of research on Gender Equality in the scientific and archaeological field.
