Members of the Sciences Po community are encouraged to join to recognize and honor Camille’s embodiment of the values that Sciences Po strives to uphold, while enjoying an opportunity to network and engage with fellow Alumni.

She currently serves as the Global Director for Trust & Safety at Niantic, a leading Augmented Reality company. She was previously the chief innovation officer at Graphika, a company providing insights on social media landscapes, tracking how states are using social media for disinformation and misinformation. Prior to joining Graphika, she worked at Jigsaw, a unit within Google dedicated to exploring threats to open societies. She is a Fulbright fellow and served as the special advisor to the CTO of France within the prime minister's office.

Most recently, on July 13th, Camille was named by President Emmanuel Macron to the Etats généraux de l’information independent steering committee. The committee will launch in September, to “fight against all attempts at interference and give journalists the best framework to fulfill their mission”. She will be one of five members of this prestigious committee to examine the legal framework of journalism in France.
