L. Jean Camp, professor of informatics at the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering, has been named an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Fellow for her research in human-centered risk and security.

Camp’s work focuses on the intersection of human and technical trust, levering economic models and human-centered design to create safe, secure systems. She has earned support for her work from the National Science Foundation, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, and the Department of Homeland Security, plus other private funding.

“I first read about the Fellows of the IEEE during our introduction to professional engineering classes when I was an undergrad,” Camp said. “I am now amazed, honored, and humbled by being counted among that number.”

Camp joined SICE as an associate professor in 2004 after eight years at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, where her courses were also listed in Harvard Law, Harvard Business, and the Engineering Systems Division of MIT.

“Jean is richly deserving of being named a prestigious IEEE Fellow,” said Raj Acharya, dean of SICE. “She has been a visionary in her field, and her work has made a real impact on everyday life and influenced experts around the world.”

The IEEE Grade of Fellow is reserved for IEEE members whose accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest are deemed fitting the distinction. The total number selected in any one year does not exceed one-tenth of one percent of the total voting Institute membership, and it is the highest honor bestowed upon IEEE members.

Camp has been a member of the IEEE since 1987. She became an IEEE Senior Member in September 1999, and her first invited presentation was with IEEE in October 1994. She has been a member of IEEE USAB Committee on Communications and Information Policy since that time. She has participated once in the annual Congressional Briefing of the IEEE USAB, has served one term on the Board of Governors of the IEEE Society on Social Implications of Technology, and is currently chair of the IEEE USA Committee on Communications Policy.

Camp also recently was named an American Association for the Advancement of Science Fellow. She served two terms as both the director of Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility and president of the International Financial Cryptography Association. She is author of more than 50 peer-reviewed publications, 16 book chapters, and two books on subjects including cybersecurity, privacy, and trust.

She is also a leader on many of IU's graduate, Ph.D., and undergraduate courses on information security, and serves as the director of Center for Security and Privacy at SICE.
