Tom is interested in critical nuclear politics, and his current research explores the imagination and construction of alternative nuclear futures. He is interested in how particular visions of the nuclear (and non-nuclear) future have been created historically while others have been foreclosed, and also in the many ways in which disciplinary IR and strategic studies struggle to imagine the (nuclear) future. He is developing a postdoctoral research agenda to examine how these different imaginaries of the nuclear future can be built, and how far they can accommodate multilateral nuclear disarmament.
