Knowing how long we have before we interact with a zombie could mean the

difference between life, death and zombification. Here, we apply the

same mathematical models to zombies that you would use to describe flu,

or measles. We use this model to derive exact and approximate

interaction times and use these to develop strategies which allow the

human race to survive impending doom.

Thomas Woolley is an Oxford mathematician who specializes in mathematical modelling

of biological systems. He also has a wide reputation as a speaker to schools and

other young audiences and in other outreach activities to the community:
