Abigail Powers Lott is a clinical psychologist and Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, School of Medicine, at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. Her interest in psychology first began at Emory, where she obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Anthropology. She then went on to get her doctoral degree in clinical psychology from Washington University in St. Louis. She completed her predoctoral clinical residency at the Medical University of South Carolina, in Charleston, SC, in 2013 and then found her way back to Atlanta after completing her doctorate.
Dr. Lott primarily conducts research as part of the Grady Trauma Project, a large scale study aimed at understanding genetic and environmental risk and resilience factors to PTSD in a highly traumatized, urban population. Her current focus is on understanding the impact of emotion dysregulation on trauma-related psychopathology. In addition to her research, she enjoys seeing patients and supervising clinical psychology graduate students in their clinical and research training.
