There is an impending doom that the undead will once again populate the Earth. In this talk, I will describe the mathematics behind this invasion. First, using scientific zombie data, I will discuss and analyze the population dynamics of zombie infestations and how it may be possible to overcome them. After, I will talk about some advances in the science of Vampirology with former Pitt math major Jackie Ruchti. In the presence of vampire killers, oscillations can emerge between the populations of vampires and their victims.
