Bradley Duncan

Dr. Bradley Duncan is a technical staff member in the Advanced Materials and Microsystems Group, where he is pursuing research in novel materials for additive manufacturing, fiber-based technologies, and microfabrication. His broader research interests also include the synthetic modification of nanomaterials and metastable chemical systems.

Recently, Duncan has focused on the development of a suite of composite materials and deposition technologies for the additive manufacturing of radio frequency devices. In this work, he generated a modular materials system in which a broad range of metal and ceramic particles can be incorporated into a 3D-printable polymer matrix. He has published more than 30 peer-reviewed papers, primarily in the area of applied nanomaterials. He is a co-inventor on several filed patents based on this work.

Prior to joining the Laboratory, Duncan received a PhD degree in organic chemistry from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and a BA degree in chemistry from Saint Anselm College. As a graduate student, he conducted research on the supramolecular assembly of nanomaterials and their interaction with biological systems.
