Professor Michael Bradley did his undergraduate studies in Physics (Honours B.Sc.) at the University of New Brunswick, where he was the top graduating student, winning the Lieutenant Governor's Gold Medal. He then did his Ph.D. at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the group of Prof. David E. Pritchard, with a Ph.D. thesis on Penning ion traps. He then worked as a Research Scientists at Axcelis Technologies (formerly the Eaton Semiconductor Equipment Corporation), where he developed new plasma processing technologies for semiconductor chip fabrication. He also spent two years as a Chercheur Associé/Research Fellow at the Bureau International des Poids et Measures (BIPM), working on precision metrology using superconductors. Prof. Bradley is a Full Professor in the Department of Physics & Engineering Physics, where he runs a research group focused on plasma processing of materials. He is also an award-winning teacher.
