Cory Taylor graduated from Union University in 2010 with a bachelor's degree in biblical studies, with an emphasis in the biblical languages. While at Union, he was research and teaching assistant for the Dean of the School of Theology. He also holds a post-baccalaureate certificate in classics from the University of Iowa, which he received in 2012.

At Iowa, Cory has been teaching assistant for Jerusalem: From the Bronze to the Digital Age; Judaism, Christianity, and Islam; Quest for Human Destiny; Ancient Mediterranean Religions; and Digital Modeling. In addition to his position as a teaching assistant, Cory is also a researcher for the Digital Studio for Public Arts and Humanities, where he works primarily with Dr. Robert Cargill and Dr. Paul Dilley, providing support for their research in the Digital Humanities.

Cory's main research interests are biblical studies, archaeology, Second-Temple Judaism, and early Christianity, and the role the Digital Humanities plays in each of the above disciplines. In his spare time, he enjoys hanging out with his wife, Abigail, and his daughter, Elley, reading, and finding new music to listen to.
