Camille holds a Masters’ degree in Public Health (MPH) from the Bordeaux School of Public Health with a specialization in international health. Her professional experience includes operations research on health systems mostly in Sub-Saharan Africa, and public health program management in collaboration with a wide range of stakeholders. More recently, she has been leading the operations of the NGO Just One Giant Lab (JOGL) and its platform, fostering the collaboration of a +4000 online volunteer community worldwide, composed of researchers, students, and entrepreneurs to undertake research and innovation projects on immunization and now COVID-19 within an open science framework. Globally, her professional interests lie in the resolution of global health issues in low-resource settings related to universal health coverage, implementation research, governance and participatory approach, and complex systems analysis. She is also a strong advocate of open science.
Current research: Camille’s current research work and interest focus on citizen science and collaborative approaches for addressing global health issues.
i) Citizen science: As part of a Horizon 2020 EU-funded project, Camille contributes to researching the extent to which Citizen Science (CS) can provide an essential source of non-traditional data for tracking progress towards the SDGs, as well as the ability of CS to generate social innovations that enable such progress. She is particularly working on methodologies of knowledge production and project evaluation that are different from traditional academic science and can inform best practices for CS, especially in the context of the SDGs.
ii) Transdisciplinarity and collaboration for open-science communities and projects: Part of her research work for Just One Giant Lab is performed in collaboration with Dr. Marc Santolini (CRI, Paris) at the interaction data lab, in close collaboration with Dr. Bastian Greshake Tzovaras (Open Humans Foundation) and a team of research volunteers. She leads the collaborative community-based research and the monitoring and evaluation of Just One Giant Lab programs, documenting the formation and structuration of programs and their communities. They also study team dynamics, diversity, and collaboration using network science approaches.
iii) Health system resilience: Camille had the opportunity to collaborate with teams at the Institute for Research and Development (IRD, Paris) studying both population health in mobility settings and health systems resilience, in the context of climate change. She set up a framework for open collaboration around the conceptual framework of health system resilience.
Future research: Camille’s research ambition lies in the intersection of the study of health systems, open science initiatives, and collaborative approaches and aims to nourish – and be nourished by – program implementation. She wishes to complete her training in Biology and International Health and experience by gaining expertise in health policy, evaluation, and complex systems analysis. To this end, she is currently prospecting for a Doctorate in Public Health (September 2022).
