Tracy Kimbrel is a Program Director in the Division of Computing and Communication Foundations (CCF) within the Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE). Tracy is a member of CCF's Algorithmic Foundations cluster.

Prior to joining NSF in 2009, Tracy was a Research Staff Member at the IBM TJ Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, New York.  Tracy's research efforts concerned the design, analysis, and implementation of algorithms, ranging from highly theoretical to the most practical of efforts.  His work at IBM included pure research, development of tools used in-house at IBM, performance improvements to IBM's product lines, and custom production software systems developed directly with users.  His research areas include online algorithms, scheduling and resource management with applications ranging from computer file systems to ground transportation, and approximation algorithms.  Tracy also developed the Introduction to Algorithms class for the IBM TJ Watson Research Center's Family Science Program, which exposes elementary school children and their parents to scientific concepts and the industrial research environment.

Tracy holds Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. degrees in Computer Science, all from the University of Washington.
