His graduate research involved the phylogenetics of montane Senecioneae (Asteraceae) from Mexico and Guatemala. Since graduate school Taylor has been conducting field work involving lichens and bryophytes and teaching biology courses at two different universities. His two current projects involve the lichen and bryophyte flora of Northwestern Missouri and monitoring biodiversity in Missouri Ozarks glade ecosystems. He also is interested in collecting in Texas to inventory lichen and bryophyte taxa from the state.
