Bradley is a graduate student specializing in Arabic. His research focuses on Iraqi ethno-religious minorities in the Diaspora, particularly Yazidis, Assyrians, Mandaeans, and Babylonian Jews. Bradley is especially interested in the ways in which these respective communities preserve and transmit their cultures, customs, and languages in exile.

Through fieldwork and interviews, Bradley aims to conduct a thorough comparative examination of how these diaspora communities have evolved in relative isolation from one another outside of Iraq. He further aims to catalogue the ways in which these communities leverage their own civil society organizations to grapple with fundamental questions of identity.

Bradley received his B.A. in History from the University of Akron. He previously served as head of the Yazidi Genocide Documentation Program in Iraqi Kurdistan with Yazda, an international humanitarian organization. He additionally worked as a medical volunteer with the Free Burma Rangers in Mosul, Iraq.
