Professor Camacho received his interdisciplinary training in anthropology, literature, and history at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. He has also held research appointments in indigenous studies at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, and at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. As an historian of Chamorros and other Pacific Islanders, he has published widely on empire, gender, militarism, race, and sovereignty in the Mariana Islands, Oceania, and the broader Asia-Pacific region. His new research agenda extends these issues to the sphere of U.S. colonial law and to its imperial regimes of freedom, punishment, and surveillance in the Pacific.
