Appointed to Applied Mathematics

Cross-appointed to Biology


PhD, Rutgers University (2001)
MSc, Dalhousie University (1997)
BSc, University of King's College (1996)


Professor Ingalls' work involves the application of mathematical tools from systems and control theory to studies of biological systems. This analysis is applied to both intracellular systems (e.g. genetic regulatory networks) and networks of cells, including neuronal networks. Dr. Ingalls' work on sensitivity analysis – a key aspect of computational modelling – has been published in the Journal of Theoretical Biology and the Journal of Physical Chemistry. Professor Ingalls is an associate editor of the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) Systems Biology and a member of the editorial board of the International Journal of Applied Mathematical Analysis and Applications. His work on regulation of cellular activity is funded by Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).

CTN Research Day 2023 Oct 17 16:30 - 19:00 QNC 0101

The Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience will be hosting its second Research Day. This will be a chance to start the new academic year by getting re-acquainted with each other and the diversity of research conducted by CTN core and affiliate faculty. The format will be to have a number of CTN faculty share short overviews of their lab's and projects (16:30-17:30) and then, following a short coffee break (17:30-18:00), hear from a dozen current graduate students and post-docs giving short three minute talks on an aspect of their current research (18:00-19:00).
