Camille is a Research Assistant for Professor John Braithwaite, focusing on the longterm project Peacebuilding Compared, which has been funded by the ARC since 2004.
Camille has had an eclectic career. Interspersed with travelling the world, raising two daughters and a husband, she has worked in the community sector, natural resource management and in the tertiary sector.
Born in PNG, her early years furnished her interest in international development, on which she focused in her Bachelor of Arts (Social Geography and Psychology) and a Masters of Environmental Studies (Adelaide University and James Cook University). A large component of her Masters focused on Indigenous land management issues in remote areas, and environmental policy and education, which she was able to integrate in a Grad Dip in Education (also at Adelaide).
Almost a decade in the far north of Queensland led her completely off any academic path and mostly into the community sector, until she moved to Brisbane where she commenced a Masters of Library and Information Studies at QUT - which was overtaken by getting significant amounts of RA work and starting a family.
She has published in the fields of information literacy, phenomenograpy and IT education, and has undertaken extensive work in editing and proof-reading. Parenting, part-time work and volunteering have filled in many years in Canberra and in Honiara and Pretoria, where she held the official Australian Government designated role of ‘trailing spouse’.
Camille’s skills, experience and passions have converged and she is happy to be a part of RegNet.
