A native of Durham, North Carolina, Bernard Dillard is Associate Professor in the Science and Mathematics department. His research involves using statistical techniques to zero in on possible bioterrorist attacks involving anthrax by analyzing non-traditional data streams. He has also been involved with exploring methods in statistical clustering analysis that predict location and placement of IEDs in Iraqi war zones.

In addition to his scholastic side, Professor Dillard enjoys acting and modeling. He has booked key gigs, including acting roles for The Wire, theater roles for Deli of the Damned, and Topdog/Underdog, and modeling and commercial assignments for Sean John and Sony Ericsson. He is always engaged in the auditioning process in the New York area and continues to pursue significant small- and big-screen roles.
