Dr. Omar Camarillo
How did you get involved in the Summer Research Team Program?
I got involved in the DHS-ORISE SRT program through an email that was forwarded to me by Dr. Dale Streeter. I applied for the SRT program by submitting a proposal along with my application and the name of two students, Cecilia Torres and Xandra James. It was a very competitive process. We went through three phases before getting selected for the SRT program by DHS and CINA (Criminal Investigations and Network Analysis), a DHS Center of Excellence.
This was my first time in participating in the DHS-ORISE SRT program, and I would definitely encourage other faculty at ENMU to apply and give their students a hands-on approach to research and working with the federal government. Read more.
