Tom's research investigates the driving forces behind changes in the geography of manufacturing in Rhode Island between 1950-2010. His work documents how this geography developed along with urban demographic and political shifts to disproportionately expose vulnerable populations to the hazards of industrial manufacturing. In the past year, as a part of the Brown Superfund Research Program, Tom's work has turned to developing methods for classifying neighborhoods based on their complex environmental exposures from industrial manufacturing. Additionally, Tom has developed a new project with the Climate Development Lab aimed at mapping the climate change discourse on Twitter and measuring the impact of Twitter bots on generating and maintaining political polarization about climate change.
