Bradley Garrett is a geographer, writer and photographer based between Los Angeles and Dublin. He moved to University College Dublin in 2020 following a three-year ethnographic research project with doomsday preppers around the world who have been preparing for widespread catastrophe. His new manuscript on the topic, Bunker: Building for the End Times, will be published in August by Penguin Books.

Dr Garrett completed his PhD at the University of London in 2012 and has held research fellowships at both the University of Oxford and the University of Sydney. He has published five books and over 50 journal articles and book chapters. He has also written for the Guardian, The Atlantic, Vox, and the Financial Times.

Dr Garrett’s work has been featured on worldwide media outlets, including GQ Magazine in the USA, Conversations on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and the BBC in the UK. He has been an invited speaker at The Festival of Dangerous Ideas at the Sydney Opera House, the Google Zeitgeist annual summit in the USA, and at the Tate Modern and Barbican galleries in the UK.
