Cross-appointed to Biology


PhD, Cornell University (1991)
BMath, University of Waterloo (1986)


Dr. Campbell is a member of Dynamical Systems and Mathematical Biology Research Groups of the Department of Applied Mathematics and holds a cross-appointment to the Department of Biology.  Her research interests span from biophysical models of single cell neurons and micro-circuits to neural-field models of populations of neurons. She has applied these models to understand the genesis of neural assemblies in inhibitory networks and to study age effects on the occurrence of epileptic seizures.  Her work has appeared in highly respected publications including the Journal of Computational Neuroscience, the SIAM Journal on Applied Dynamical Systems and Frontiers in Systems Neuroscience.
