Even though Camila has spent most of her adult life in academia, after obtaining her PhD in literature from Columbia University, she realized radio was her true passion. She has been working for years as a freelance editor and translator, and now she has joined Radio Ambulante’s team where she is closer to her real interests. Currently she lives in Bogota with her husband and daughter Carmen.
