Christian Smith

Dr. Christian Smith is a research scientist specializing in pediatric brain tumour research.

Christian will graduate in May 2017 with an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from the University of King’s College in Halifax.

While Christian’s professional experience is primarily rooted in molecular cancer biology and basic science research, he has always had an affinity for creative writing and is currently completing his debut nonfiction book titled The Scientist and the Psychic, telling the story of celebrity psychic Geraldine Smith, who also happens to be his mother. The Scientist and the Psychic is an investigation into the science of the paranormal with the personal story of one of the most prolific and pioneering psychics of our time.
