“It was a blind date for the two of us, though not for the other couple,” she says. “We went on another date a week or two later, just the two of us, and another after that, and the rest is history.”

As students, the two enjoyed playing board games together with friends in the Society of Physics Students room.

Mark earned a bachelor’s degree in physics in 2008, and Camille earned a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering in 2009. The couple married in October 2010.

Their relationship advice?

“No matter how awkward it seems, it’s always better to discuss an issue with your significant other rather than let misunderstandings or misconceptions remain between you,” she says.
