Camille Jacqueline, PhD

Camille is a first year Postdoctoral Associate in the Department of Immunology at the University of Pittsburgh. Her research focuses on the impact of infectious diseases on cancer risk. She obtained her PhD in Montpellier (France) before moving to Pittsburgh in July 2018. She loves learning about new cultures, she has traveled for several months in Asia, and she is now very excited about knowing more of the American way of life. In her spare time, she enjoys socializing, yoga, climbing, hiking and exploring Pittsburgh, from its forests or museums to its restaurants. As a PhD student, she was an active member of a PhD student association organizing conferences but, most of all, which was trying to create a dynamic community of students from different background and motivate them to help one another. Armed with this experience, she wishes to help any student that are starting a new life, here, in Pittsburgh. As the International Committee Chair, she would like to continue to provide support specific to the needs of international postdocs, such as navigating Visa requirements, pursuing international research funding, and providing cultural exchange opportunities. One of her specific goals will be to provide new opportunities for international postdocs to gather and exchange through less formal social events, as happy hours events, that will be open to domestic postdocs as well.
