In 2015, Bradley joined the Ph.D. in Educational Neuroscience (PEN) program at Gallaudet University in Washington, District of Columbia, where he is a doctoral candidate and graduate research assistant in Dr. Clifton Langdon's Language and Educational Neuroscience Laboratory.
Bradley received his bachelor of science, summa cum laude, in communication sciences and disorders with a minor in psychology in 2014 from The Honors College at Texas A&M University-Kingsville in the Texas Gulf Coast. He has past academic and clinical training in the areas of speech-language pathology, audiology, and pharmacology.
His primary research interests explore the neural substrates of language using variations in language perception, such as those with hearing amplification and prosthetic devices (e.g., hearing aids, cochlear implants, auditory brainstem implants) as a unique lens. Specifically, he is interested in using these different signals to reveal how top-down linguistic processes are modulated by bottom-up variations, which holds much promise to better understand cognitive load and linguistic processing in hearing loss. These scientific discoveries also have high potential for translational implications for clinicians, policy makers, educators, and engineers.
