Dr. Taylor Arnold

Assistant Professor of Statistics


Dr. Arnold studies massive cultural datasets in order to address new and existing research questions in the humanities and social sciences. He specializes in the application of statistical computing to large text and image corpora. The study of data containing linked text and images, such as newspapers with embedded figures or television shows with associated closed captions, is of particular interest. Research products take on several forms: book length manuscripts, technical reports, new software implementations, and digital projects intended for broad public consumption.
