Taylor graduated from the College in 2014 with a degree in Public Policy and Psychology. Her senior honors thesis involved a lab experiment designed to better understand how individuals respond to political interactions. In the SNaPP Lab, Taylor has worked on a variety of projects, including aggregating polling data on Obamacare, designing lab experiments collecting physiological data, and co-authoring an NSF grant proposal with Dr. Settle. Broadly, her research focuses on understanding how individuals respond to political contention. Taylor is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of California at San Diego. She continues to collaborate with Dr. Settle and current SNaPP Lab members, despite the 2,693 miles between the two institutions.
