Stacey Smith? (the question mark is part of her name) is a professor of disease modelling at the University of Ottawa. Using mathematics, she studies infectious diseases such as HIV, malaria, human papillomavirus, COVID-19, influenza, neglected tropical diseases… and zombies. She’s published over 100 academic articles; is a winner of a Guinness World Record for her work on modelling a zombie invasion; was the winner of the 2015 Mathematics Ambassador award, given by Canada’s Partners in Research association; and won the 2018 Society for Mathematical Biology Distinguished Service Award. She was the first University of Ottawa employee to transition… but won’t be the last! Outside of her day job, she has more than 20 books to her name, including Bookwyrm (ATB Publishing), Who is the Doctor, Who’s 50and The Doctors Are In (ECW Press), Look at the Size of That Thing! (Pencil Tip Publishing), as well as a Black Archive on Doctor Who and the Silurians (Obverse Books), guides to the wonderful world of Doctor Who. She’s also the editor extraordinaire of the Outside In series of pop-culture reviews with a twist (ATB Publishing), covering Doctor Who, Star Trek, Buffy, Angel, Firefly and The X-Files. Oh, and she’s the world’s leading expert on the transmission of Bieber Fever, but let’s not worry about that one.
