Camera Walrond is currently the Production Coordinator for the Science Visualization Group at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) where she works on simulating the entire known universe via the OpenSpace Project, a project funded by NASA. Previously at AMNH, Camera worked with BridgeUp: STEM - a pilot program dedicated to teaching girls computer science and closing the gender gap in tech. Co-Producing BridgeUp: STEM's 2017 Hackathon, Hack the Stacks, served as Camera's introduction to the NYC hacker community. Since then, she has worked on other Hackathon projects such as the international NASA Space Apps Challenge via the New York City chapter, Space Apps NYC, as Conference Organizer for the chapter's annual Commercial Space, Science, and Frontier Technologies Conference.
In her spare time, Camera is also a vivacious advocate for gender equality as a member of the Metropolitan New York Chapter of the U.S. National Committee for UN Women. She is also a champion for science literacy - serving as a multi-year volunteer of the World Science Festival.
Camera’s passion for science is ultimately rooted in her lifelong drive to discover how complex systems work, which lured her towards philosophy in undergraduate school. She holds a BA in Philosophy from the State University of New York College at Oneonta.
