Camille Rodriguez is a Ph.D. student in Mechanical Engineering at MIT. Her research focuses on characterizing cell mechanics and dynamics and understanding their role in disease progression and regeneration. She is also a MIT School of Engineering Lemelson Fellowship recipient and an Alfred P. Sloan 2021-22 Scholar. Camille received a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Cum Laude, with a minor in Biomechanics from the University of Florida. As an undergraduate she developed adaptive devices for teens and children with limb differences and conducted STEM activities with them. From mentoring women within this organization to teaching engineering topics, she wants to continue to make science and engineering accessible for all communities.
