Vitor Sette Berto


I study Geology at the University of São Paulo (Brazil) and currently I am a visiting student at the University College Cork (Ireland). During this summer I’m working on a research project: “Iridescent Coloration in Fossil Cephalopods”. I decided to focus on Palaeontology because it is fascinating to understand the history of Earth and life by studying fossils.


May 2016 – Jul 2016: Summer Project (“Iridescent Coloration in Fossil Cephalopods”) supervised by Dr Maria McNamara at the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences, University College Cork, Ireland.

Sep 2015 – May 2016: Visiting Student at the University College Cork, Ireland.

Feb 2012 – Dec 2017: BSc in Geology at the University of São Paulo, Brazil.
