Research Summary

Taylor's research broadly focuses on the interactions between brain and pubertal development, environmental adversity, and psychiatric risk. More specifically, he aims to characterize typical structural and functional brain development during childhood and adolescence and how the timing and tempo of puberty is mediated by neurodevelopment. He is also interested in how neurodevelopment is altered by early-life adversity and how these changes confer risk for psychiatric symptoms. His work makes extensive use of structural and functional MRI, computational modeling, and data science/machine learning approaches.
