Tom Sear's work explores cyber security, digital commemoration and the warfare information space (notably interpersonal and social media-based communication) over the last century. It has a particular focus on the convergence and reflexivity between the memory of nodal conflicts from the twentieth century, contemporary, hybrid war, SOF deployment and media ecologies. The purpose of this research is to advise military personnel and educators how to maximize information tools within future conflict, by applying historical, social science and digital theory lenses to the analysis. He is currently a PhD Candidate, UNSW Canberra at the Australian Defence Force Academy.
