Isabella Palumbo

Isabella Palumbo is a first year doctoral student in clinical neuropsychology at Georgia State University. Isabella received a B.S. in Psychology and Biology from Florida State University (FSU). Prior to coming to GSU, Isabella worked as the Lab Coordinator/Research Assistant for a clinical-neuroscience lab in the Department of Psychology at FSU. Their work focused on combining diagnostic and personality assessment with neurophysiological methods as applied to the study of psychopathy, externalizing (impulse control) problems, and internalizing (anxiety and mood) disorders.

Isabella is interested in continuing to develop cross-modal assessments to examine the development and persistence of callousness and aggression as it relates to affective processing, impulsive and risky behavior, and psychopathy.
