Bradley is a professor in the Faculty of Science of the University of the
Witwatersrand in South Africa. After obtaining his Ph.D. in chemistry from
King's College, London, in 1962, he held a post-doctoral fellowship at Florida
State University (USA). In 1964, he returned to South Africa and began teaching
and conducting research in physical organic chemistry at the University of the
Witwatersrand. In the early 1980s, (when South African higher education was
still strongly white oriented), out of concern for educationally disadvantaged
students, he spearheaded initiatives at his university to provide such students
access to science education. These initiatives included entry-level programs for
the disenfranchised and a research program in chemistry education, which has
enabled 7 Ph.D.and 14 M.S. students to complete their studies under his
leadership. In 1990, Bradley became director of his university 's Centre for
Research and Development in Mathematics, Science, and Technology Education.
Aware of his leadership in science education, IUPAC asked him to join the IUPAC
Committee on Teaching of Chemistry, which he chaired from 1996 to 2001. He
served as education officer of the South Africa Chemical Institute from 1992 to
2000 and as its president from 1998 to 2000.
