John Bradley is now an Honorary Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Digital Humanities and King's Digital Lab at King's College London. He started work at KCL in 1997, and for most of his time there he worked as a Senior Analyst on more than 20 humanities oriented digital projects. However, his work had always contained elements of academic activity including research, publication and teaching, and he was made a Senior Lecturer in 2011, four years before his retirement in 2015. Before coming to King's in 1997 he was at the University of Toronto where, among other things, he designed and worked with a small team to develop the well-known early text analysis software TACT.
