Tracy Camp is a Full Professor and Head of the Department of Computer Science at the Colorado School of Mines. She is the Founder and Director of the Toilers (, an active ad hoc networks research group. 

Her current research interests include the credibility of ad hoc network simulation studies and the use of wireless sensor networks in geosystems. Dr. Camp has received over 20 grants from the National Science Foundation, including a prestigious NSF CAREER award. In total, her projects have received over $20 million dollars in external funding. This funding has produced 12 software packages that have been requested from (and shared with) more than 3000 researchers in 86 countries (as of October 2012).
