He has a joint appointment with the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Psychiatry, working with Dr. Ryan Herringa and the BRAVE Research Center. He received his Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of Wisconsin-Madison . His research broadly focuses on the development of emotion-related brain circuitry during childhood and adolescence, how circuit maturation is altered by early-life adversity, and how these alterations influence risk for pediatric psychopathology. His work utilizes neuroimaging (sMRI, fMRI, DTI), in combination with computational and predictive modeling approaches. In recognition of his work, Taylor has received numerous awards and honors from organizations such as the National Institutes of Mental Health, the National Science Foundation, the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation, the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, the Society for Biological Psychiatry, and the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology.
