Taylor is a DPhil Candidate in International Relations at St Hilda's College, Oxford. Her research is funded by the ESRC Grand Union Doctoral Training Partnership.

Her research focuses on the emergence, institutionalisation, and development of conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV) as an international issue. She explores why the international community was inclined to place CRSV on the international agenda and to take action, with a particular emphasis on the inclusion of CRSV in international criminal justice mechanisms of the 1990s and in United Nations forums in the 2000s.

Taylor's research builds on themes from her MPhil in International Relations at Lincoln College, Oxford. Prior to coming to Oxford, she completed her MA (Hons) in International Relations at the University of St Andrews, where she received the Principal's Scholarship for Academic Excellence, the Matt Howell Dissertation Prize and the Professor Paul Wilkinson Prize. Alongside her studies, Taylor interned at non-profits, a research centre, and an NGO, and worked as a research assistant. She is currently a Student Representative for the DPhil International Relations course.
