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.
