    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research focuses on the scientific history of anthropogenic existential risk and its impact on Western political thought. I focus in particular on the development of massed thermonuclear arsenals during the 1950s, the rise of Earth System science and attendant ecological risks during the 1980s, and the anxieties surrounding the prospect of artificial super intelligence that took hold in the 2000s.
