Sean Trott

Assistant Teaching Professor of Computational Social Science and Cognitive Science

Sean Trott is a computational psycholinguist. His research uses a combination of behavioral experiments, computational tools (e.g., neural language models), and corpus analysis to ask questions about how humans understand language and why languages look the way that they do. For example: how do we understand ambiguous language, and why is language so ambiguous in the first place? Finally, he teaches courses on language, research methods, statistics, and computational social science.
