Taylor is studying vertebrate inner ear evolution, comparative morphology, and sensory biology using Serpentes as her focal study taxa. She is interested in how ecology and phylogeny affect sensory form and function, and how sensory systems interact with one another in unique environments. The UMMZ herpetological collection and CT scanning center have played a key role in generating a global database of snake morphologies for her research.
