Camille got her undergraduate degree at Hampton University. While an undergraduate, she participated in the UC-HBCU Initiative 'Diversity Project' at UCLA, getting an immersive experience in marine biology while studying in Indonesia. Camille then went on to get a Ph.D. with Peggy Fong at UCLA in 2019 studying the dynamics of algal turf communities in Moorea, French Polynesia. She is currently a UC President's Postdoctoral Fellow.
Camille was a UC President's Postdoctoral fellow in the lab in 20019 working with ‘The Pile’ and collaborator Dr. Katie Barott at the University of Pennsylvania, Camille’s postdoc research on turf algae, and how the ‘hidden diversity’ within impacts the vital functions this community provides to coral reefs using DNA metabarcoding. She is now a Penn Provost Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania.
