About Taylor

Taylor completed her Bachelor of Engineering in BME at Vanderbilt University followed by a one-year fellowship funded by the Whitaker International Program (Institute of International Education) prior to entering MIT as a graduate student. Her previous research focused on the usage of non-invasive, label-free optical imaging tools for preclinical applications, such as drug development, whereas her current research focuses on the application of similar optical imaging tools in clinical diagnostic settings. Over the duration of her PhD, she has investigated both hardware and software solutions to improve the diagnostic potential of optical imaging across several medical disciplines, including cardiology, dermatology, and cancer research.
