Lucy Campbell, Associate Professor, Carleton University, Department of Mathematics
Lucy Campbell was born in Barbados and lived in Jamaica, Ghana and the UK before moving to Canada. She obtained her PhD in Applied Mathematics at McGill University and did postdoctoral work in Atmospheric Physics at the University of Toronto. She is currently an Associate Professor in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at Carleton University. In addition to teaching mathematics courses at both undergraduate and graduate levels, she carries out scientific research often with the involvement of graduate students. Her research involves applications of differential equations and numerical analysis with a particular focus on mathematical modelling in geophysical fluid dynamics. The aim is to improve our understanding of the mechanisms by which the earth's atmosphere and ocean evolve with time; this is relevant to climate modelling and weather prediction. Lucy is active in the applied mathematics community in Canada and is currently the treasurer and a member of the board of directors of the Canadian Applied and Industrial Mathematics Society.

Most people associate waves with the ocean, but for Carleton University math professor Lucy Campbell, the waves in the air are much more interesting. Campbell is conducting research into geo-physical fluid dynamics- that is to say, the movements in Earth's atmosphere and oceans- and how they affect weather patterns. El Nino and other large-scale weather patterns are often related to these waves.
Rather than focusing on the physical side of things, however, Campbell is working with mathematical formulas that can be used in predicting the behaviour of waves in the atmosphere. For example, a mountain range can affect the air flow and cause waves, which are occasionally visible in the shapes of clouds. These waves are erratic and hard to predict, due to gravity and the rotation of the Earth, and so her research deals with extremely complex formulas.
Working with a team of Carleton students and in collaboration with Atmospheric Science researchers, Campbell hopes to refine existing methods of wave prediction, so that when computer hardware becomes powerful enough to simulate these weather patterns effectively, the formulas will be as accurate as possible. Especially with climate change such a serious concern in the 21 st century, Campbell's research can be applied to solve real-world problems.
