Taylor uses principles in the field of injury prevention and control to address safety issues in health care settings and in certain occupational groups, including firefighters. Taylor’s research unites evidence from the fields of injury prevention and control, quality improvement and occupational safety. She employs an integrated public health approach to these issues through the study of patients, health care workers and the policy environment. As director of the NIH-funded FIRST project at Drexel, she is developing and piloting a comprehensive system to record nonfatal firefighter injuries to better aid prevention efforts.

Prior to her academic appointment, Taylor served 15 years of experience in state government, hospital quality management and the basic sciences.
