Congratulations to Sue Ann Campbell, who has been named one of the four 2024 Fellows of the Canadian Mathematical Society. Campbell is a professor of applied mathematics, and the associate dean for research in the Faculty of Mathematics.

“I feel very honoured to join the distinguished group of Canadian Mathematicians who are CMS Fellows,” Campbell says.

The Canadian Mathematical Society is the Canada’s main national math organization. It is devoted to promoting and advancing “the discovery, learning and application of mathematics.” Campbell is one of four Fellows named this year: the other three are Edward Doolittle (First Nations University of Canada); Robert Jerrard (University of Toronto); and Yael Karshon (University of Toronto).

Campbell earned her B.Math from the University of Waterloo, and has been a professor in the Faculty of Mathematics since 1994. Her work applies mathematical theory to determine how patterns of electrical activity arise in models of biological neural networks. She has served in the past as the chair of the Department of Applied Mathematics, and currently serves as president of the Canadian Applied & Industrial Society (CAIMS) in addition to her administrative role in the Faculty of Mathematics.

“I’m very thankful to my collaborators, students and colleagues on the Board of CAIMS,” Campbell says.
