Bradley Dilger is one of the leaders of the Corpus & Repository of Writing (Crow), the first learner corpus linked to a repository of pedagogical texts. Crow researchers are creating digital tools to study writing and developing sustainable practices for interdisciplinary collaboration in the humanistic social sciences. With Neil Baird, Dilger has been studying writing transfer: the ways writers adapt writing-related skills, experience, and knowledge between different contexts. Findings from Baird & Dilger’s study of students and faculty writing in the major at Western Illinois University have been published in College Composition and Communication, WPA: Writing Program Administration, and are forthcoming in two edited collections. Dilger also participates in the Transculturation project, designing writing courses seeking to encourage meaningful intercultural interaction among international and domestic students. With Jeff Rice, he edited the collection From A to<A>: Keywords of Markup, winner of the 2010 Computers & Composition Book Award.

Dilger joined the Purdue faculty in Fall 2014, after 11 years at WIU. From August 2016 to May 2020, he directed Introductory Composition at Purdue.
