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 did his Ph.D. work at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the ion trapping group of Prof. David E. Pritchard. His Ph.D. thesis work was the world's highest-precision measurement of the mass of Cs-133, measured using single ions in a penning trap, using a novel DC SQUID detector. 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), where he designed and built the first superconducting watt balance prototype. Prof. Bradley is a Professor in the Department of Physics & Engineering Physics, where he runs a research group focused on plasma and ion sources for new quantum materials applications. He is also an award-winning teacher.
