Tyler received his bachelor's degree in German from Oakland University and his master's degree from Washington University.

His research focuses on testimony and witnessing in Holocaust film and literature. He is particularly interested in the testimonial act and the role of the interlocutor in autobiographical works and documentary film.

In his free time Tyler enjoys cooking, baking, and walking his dog in Forest Park.
