Dr. Taylor is a child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist interested in developing interventions to prevent schizophrenia and other illnesses with psychotic features, like bipolar. He is also interested in the biological mechanisms underlying the transition from being a youth at high risk for psychosis (e.g. a child or adolescent who has a family member with schizophrenia or bipolar) to a youth with a frank psychotic disorder.

He is particularly interested in the roles that neuroinflammation, oxidative stress, and sleep play in symptom progression to threshold psychosis. Dr. Taylor has received multiple awards and grants for his research including the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression Young Investigator Grant, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Pilot Research Award, and the American Psychiatric Association - Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Minority Fellowship.

Clinically, Dr. Taylor is committed to providing mental healthcare to under-resourced, minority, and LGBTQI communities.

Dr. Taylor completed his psychiatry residency and child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship at Yale, where he was Chief Resident. At Yale, he conducted clinical research focusing on anxiety and obesity. He received his MD from the University of Virginia, completed an Applied Epidemiology Fellowship at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and graduated summa cum laude from Rice University with a BA in Biochemistry and Cell Biology.
