Taylor is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the Yale Child Study Center, conducting research in the lab of Dr. Dylan Gee ( He received his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison under the mentorship of Dr. Ryan Herringa. His research broadly focuses on the neurobiological underpinnings of pubertal initiation and tempo, how this relationship is altered by dimensions of early-life adversity, and how alterations influence risk for pediatric psychopathology. His work utilizes neuroimaging (sMRI, fMRI, DTI) combined with computational and predictive modeling approaches. In recognition of his work, Taylor has been the recipient of multiple fellowships, awards, and honors from organizations such as the National Institutes of Mental Health, the National Science Foundation, the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, the Society for Biological Psychiatry, and the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology.
