I study Biological Sciences at the University of Campinas (Brazil) and I studied as a visiting student at University College Cork (Ireland). This summer (2016) I worked with Dr Maria McNamara on the preservation of colour in insects, trained in laboratory experiments and collected literature. Since I studying at the university I developed an interest in palaeobiology because it is a huge multidisciplinary field which includes biology and geosciences, which are my biggest passions.
