Mr. Cabo received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, with a specialization in Zoology, from the University of Oviedo (Asturias, Spain). He also earned his Master鈥檚 degree in Biology, in addition to receiving his National Pedagogy and Teaching Certificate, from the University of Oviedo. His positions as a researcher in the departments of Biology and Geology of that university provided Mr. Cabo with a vast amount of experience and knowledge in the fields of biology, paleoanthropology, archaeology and geology. He has participated in over two dozen archaeological and paleontological field and laboratory projects, and currently coordinates paleoenvironmental research at聽聽. This archaeological site is located at Grandas de Salime, in the Principality of Asturias (Northern Spain) and contains occupation levels from the Bronze Age through the Early Roman Imperial (3000-1800 BP), and a Early Medieval Necropolis (1100-1200 BP).

Mr. Cabo began his career at 杏吧直播间 participating in the Summer Forensic Anthropology Short Courses, a series of hands-on forensic anthropology training sessions offered annually at the college. Since joining the 杏吧直播间 staff in 2003, Mr.Cabo, the Director of the Forensic and Bioarchaeology Laboratory, has assisted in the recovery and analysis of more than 200 forensic cases. He currently also serves as the main graduate student research advisor. His knowledge of evolutionary biology, zoology and physical anthropology, as well as his experience in archaeology and paleontology, have proven invaluable to the 杏吧直播间 Archaeological Institute.
