Dr. Bradford's research group focuses its efforts on the synthesis of ultra-high aspect ratio carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and production of textile like structures from those unique CNTs. The CNT textiles are currently being explored in applications such as composites, sensors, electrodes and filtration. He has the following degrees: B.S. Textile Engineering, M.S. Material Science and Engineering, M.S. Textile Engineering, and Ph.D. Materials Science and Engineering (all from North Carolina State University). He is a member of Materials Research Society and Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE).
