In 2012, Tom moved to Beijing to join the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology, and is now a professor there, and an adjunct professor of the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences. He is an avian paleontologist and integrative biologist focused mostly on understanding Cenozoic bird evolution, and he also is interested in the role of past climate change and related biogeographic dispersal in the formation of current global avian diversity. In addition to working on bird-based (and other non-mammalian) projects across China (and Asia), he also travels around China hiking, birding, and experiencing the cultural and culinary diversity of Asia.
