Joseph Camp is an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. He joined the SMU faculty in 2009 after receiving his Ph.D. in ECE from Rice University. He received an M.S. at Rice and B.S. with honors from the UT-Austin, both in ECE. His research interests are wireless communications and networking, crowdsourcing, and drones, specifically focused on the deployment, measurement, and analysis of large-scale systems and development of embedded protocols. His research team has performed over 200 million in-field wireless measurements around the world via Android deployment and local characterization via campus buses, vehicles, and buildings. He was the Chief Network Architect for the Technology For All (TFA) Network, a mesh deployment in Houston, TX which serves 4,000 users in an under-resourced community. He received the Ralph Budd Award for the best engineering thesis at Rice University (2010), the National Science Foundation CAREER Award (2012), and the Golden Mustang Teaching Award (2014).

Why should you study drone communications at SMU?
(i) We have a 60x60x25 foot drone flight enabled isolation chamber in Dallas that is close to campus with $1M of funding (and more under review to enhance it). (ii) We have a 400 acre campus in Taos, NM where we can do wide-open drone experiments. (iii) We have a 3000 square foot research lab with $1M of equipment. (iv) Dallas is a great place to live with good weather and low cost of living. (v) My students all get placed with high paying jobs (more than me) in industry.
