Dr. Camp’s research work ranges from development of new methodologies for enterprise risk management to development of a spill management information system (SMIS 2.0) which links an advanced hydrodynamic and spill model with a geographic information system (GIS) interface. Dr. Camp is also interested in the impacts of climate change on freight transportation infrastructure which led to her helping organize a national summit on the topic in June 2011 at Vanderbilt University. Dr. Camp also sees the value of integrating GIS in pre-secondary education and is working with Metro Nashville Public Schools to integrate GIS into the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Academy curriculum.

Dr. Camp is a licensed civil engineer in the state of Tennessee and actively participates in the Nashville Branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Engineers Without Borders (EWB), and Tennessee Society of Professional Engineers (TSPE). Dr. Camp is a member of the Society for Risk Analysis (SRA), the Tennessee Geographic Information Council (TNGIC), The Infrastructure Security Partnership (TISP), and the Comprehensive Emergency Management Research (CEMR) Network. She is also an affiliate of the Vanderbilt Institute for Energy and Environment (VIEE). In her spare time, Dr. Camp serves on the committee for TWISTER (Tennessee Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Research) in addition to volunteering as a Science Communication Fellow for the Adventure Science Center.
