About Brian Albanese
Assistant Professor

Brian Albanese received his PhD in clinical psychology from Florida State University after completing a pre-doctoral internship at the Charleston Consortium/Medical University of South Carolina. Albanese is now an assistant professor in the Department of Psychological Sciences at Auburn University. His program of research employs a multi-method approach (e.g., event-related potentials, heart rate variability, skin conductance, self-report) to better understand risk factors for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and suicidal thoughts and behaviors (STBs) with the ultimate goal of identifying novel intervention targets. In particular, Albanese utilizes lab-based stress paradigms in concert with ecological momentary assessments to better understand how neural mechanisms contribute to stress sensitivity and stress-elicited increases in PTSD, STBs, and related psychopathology. His research has been funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH T32) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA F31).
