Dr. Campbell is a member of Dynamical Systems and Mathematical Biology Research Groups of the Department of Applied Mathematics. Her main research interest is in the mathematical modelling of neural systems at the single cell and small network level. Recent work includes using such models to help understand the generation of rhythms in the hippocampus, in collaboration with Professor Frances Skinner of the Toronto Western Research Institute. This work has appeared in highly respected publications including the Journal of Computational Neuroscience and the Journal of Neurophysiology. Other research focuses on determining the limitations of phase oscillator models and determining the role of time delays in neural models. Dr. Campbell's recent contributions include a chapter in the book Handbook of Brain Connectivity and papers in Nonlinearity and Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) Journal on Applied Dynamical Systems.
