K-State Geology Seminar Series presents Maria Angela Capello: My Beautiful Career in Geosciences

These are good times to be a geoscientist. Never a profession has been more handsome, appealing, or useful, than now, when the environment, the decision-makers, and society need geoscientists, even if they yet do not know it. An avid and curious practitioner will develop an exciting career in geoscience. There is no doubt they will enjoy the journey from the years at the university, discovering in awe the wonders of the geosciences discipline to becoming experts, in any field they choose to pursue. Maria Angela Capello will share her own rich journey in Geoscience, developed in three continents: from supervising seismic crews in the Venezuelan jungle, to test new geo-technologies in North Dakota, to use nano-fossils in sedimentary interpretations, translate geophysical 4D results to reservoir engineers, and lead the creation of a uniform geologic model for a super-giant oil field in Kuwait, to then create an Atlas of Sustainability for all the Geosciences, with positive impact and repercussions in advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, published by the UNESCO, and endorsed globally.  This presentation is material for a filmmaker, not a drama, not a comedy. Perhaps, like every documentary, a little bit of both.

BIO: A renowned leader in the energy sector, Cav. Maria Angela Capello (“MAC”) is a relentless fighter for Sustainability and Equity across the industry.
