Eleanor Elizabeth Bryce Campbell holds the Chair of Chemistry at Edinburgh University.
Campbell was born and schooled in Rothesay on the Island of Bute, Scotland. She is a former pupil of Rothesay Academy. She completed her undergraduate degree in 1982 and doctorate in 1985 at Edinburgh University before receiving a habilitation in experimental physics from Freiburg University, Germany.
After her time as assistant professor at Freiburg University, Campbell became a departmental head at the Max-Born Institut in 1993. In 1998 she was made Chair of Atomic and Molecular Physics at Gothenburg University, Sweden before returning to Edinburgh University in to take up a post as Chair of Physical Chemistry in 2007 and then Chair of Chemistry 2013.
Campbell was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, FRS, for her contribution to the understanding of relaxation channels and reorganisational dynamics of highly excited molecules and surfaces through experimental research in 2010.
Campbell's group at Edinburgh study the fundamental ionisation mechanisms and excited state dynamics of complex molecules in the gas phase using femtosecond laser spectroscopy. They also study carbon nanomaterials and develop microporous carbon-based materials for gas capture and storage.
