Alan Sokal is a formidable teacher. He is a Professor of Physics in New York and a Professor of Mathematics in London.
In 1996 he published a hoax article in an academic journal.
He revealed the humbug of some of his colleagues and has now moved on to challenge a whole new set of people. They probably will not like it.
