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.
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.
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.
