Articles by Walter Bradley

Walter L. Bradley received his B.S. in Engineering Science and his Ph.D. in Materials Science from the University of Texas in Austin. A Fellow at Discovery Institute's Center for Science & Culture, he taught for 8 years at the Colorado School of Mines, 24 years as a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University (TAMU), and most recently for 5 years at Baylor University as a Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering.

During his 24 years at Texas A&M, Dr. Bradley served as Head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and as Director of the Polymer Technology Center, and received five College of Engineering Research Awards. He has received over $5,000,000 in research grants and has published over 150 technical articles and book chapters. Bradley has also co-authored The Mystery of Life's Origin: Reassessing Current Theories. Additionally, he has published six book chapters dealing with scientific evidence for the existence of God and reconciling the Biblical account of creation with the findings of modern science. Bradley is a Fellow of both the American Society for Materials and the American Scientific Affiliation. He also serves as a consultant for many Fortune 500 companies.

Since coming to Baylor University, Bradley has focused his research efforts on helping the poorest people in under-developed parts of the world by providing them with useful technologies. For example, he is developing various means to convert the constituent parts of coconuts into value-added products such as diesel fuel, particle board, and reinforcement for engineering plastics.
