Research Interest


Camilla earned her BA in History with a double minor in English and Political Science at Barnard College. Her undergraduate thesis focused on deconstructing how Japan's post-war generation remembers Hiroshima through film, weaving together her interests in Japan, genocide studies, public memory, and how literary and other artistic narratives have been used as modes of remembering.

After graduating in 2019, she worked at a PR firm specializing in corporate and crisis communications for clients in the financial services sector. She gained experience supporting communications around significant business announcements, complex M&A transactions, restructurings, litigations, and executive management transitions. Her previous work experience also includes working in journalistic and research-capacity roles at the Nikkei Asian Review and the Council on Foreign Relations.

As a dual candidate in the program, she hopes to continue her research in modern genocide studies and how they can inform the current conflicts in today's world.
