Dr. Taylor has two major lines of research in her lab. One line involves the study of biological, psychological, cognitive, and environmental factors related to substance use disorders, personality disorders, and their comorbidity. The other line of research involves the study of genetic and environmental influences on externalizing problems, personality, and academic achievement. The Florida State Twin Registry now includes over 2,600 twin pairs in Florida with data on reading achievement, personality, home environment, and internalizing and externalizing problems.
