Thomas MacDonald is a fellow in the Nuclear Policy Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. He has an interdisciplinary scientific background which he applies to interesting technical problems which are interwoven with political concerns. His current research focuses on verification of nuclear arms control and nonproliferation agreements. This work is along two tracks, developing verifiable and feasible arms control proposals to revitalize a flagging arms control establishment, and researching probabilistic methods to find novel approaches to stubborn arms control challenges. 

He is currently completing his Ph.D. in nuclear science and engineering at MIT. His dissertation work studies the national security implications of advancing and emerging technologies, specifically remote sensing technologies used to track nuclear weapons. He also completed a M.Sc. in pharmaceutical sciences from the University of Toronto, where he synthesized nanoparticles for detecting and treating cancer, and holds a B.Sc. in biochemistry from the University of Waterloo.
