Kameron is currently working on her PhD in Environmental Engineering at Old Dominion University. She received her M.S in Geography and Environmental Engineering at The Johns Hopkins University, and received her B.S in Chemistry and B.S in Environmental Science and Policy from the College of William and Mary.
Her undergraduate research focused on quantifying mercury in catfish found in various rivers in the Chesapeake Bay in collaboration with the Virginia Institute for Marine Science (VIMS). At Johns Hopkins she worked on the Sustainable Algal Biofuels Solution: Sourcing and Recycling Nutrients from Waste Treatment Processing project. This research focused on the promise and benefits of growing algae in wastewater. Her master’s thesis focused on the pre-treatment of Nannochloropsis salina algae in order to increase methane and biogas production during anaerobic digestion. While in Baltimore, she interned with the Maryland Department of the Environment in which she collaborated with the Land Management Administration and designed a research project comparing environmental impacts of adopting various newer technologies for waste disposal in Maryland, in order to help reach their “zero waste” goals.
As her passion for renewable energy continues, she is now working with Dr. Kumar on Integrated processing of municipal solid waste for maximizing carbon recovery and fuel production.
