My research focuses on investigating novel treatments and diagnostic tools for characterizing pathological responses to trauma, which focuses on post traumatic stress disorder and depression.I am board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology and a member of the American Society of Hispanic Psychiatry . Within the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, I am the deputy vice-chair for research.

Dr. Albott investigates novel treatments and diagnostic tools for characterizing pathological responses to trauma, with a focus on post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. She is specifically interested in using both pharmacological and neuromodulation interventions for understanding response and relapse to effective treatments using multimodal analytic methodologies.
