Isabella Palumbo is a Clinical Neuropsychology Ph.D. student at Georgia State University. Isabella is particularly interested in affective and cognitive neuroscience and multifinal psychopathology that develops from the interaction of such transdiagnostic factors.
Broadly stated, her research has two primary goals, focusing on development and individual differences:
(1) to use a trait dimensional approach to more fully understand the unified, joint structural model of personality, personality disorders, and clinical disorders.
(2) to characterize transdiagnostic neurobehavioral mechanisms underlying personality and broad dimensions of psychopathology (e.g., Research Domain Criteria; RDoC), with a particular interest in the development and use of empirically-derived, dimensional models (e.g., the Hierarchical Taxonomy of Psychopathology; HiTOP).
