Taylor Salo
PhD Student
Department of Psychology

In my time at FIU, I was a graduate student in the Department of Psychology at Florida International University, specializing in Cognitive Neuroscience, with Dr. Angela Laird as my advisor. After graduating in 2022, I started as a post-doc on the informatics team in Ted Satterthwaite’s Lifespan Informatics and Neuroimaging Center at the University of Pennsylvania.

I graduated from Cornell University (Ithaca, New York) with a B.A. in Psychology, before spending two years as a research assistant at the Translational Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience lab at the University of California, Davis. I’m primarily interested in neuroinformatics (tool-building for cognitive neuroscience), reproducible neuroimaging research, and advanced fMRI denoising.

I am the project maintainer for NiMARE, a Python package for neuroimaging meta-analyses, and a core contributor to tedana, a library for denoising multi-echo fMRI data. I also contribute to a number of neuroimaging-related Python tools, like fMRIPrep, the physiopy suite, and heudiconv.
