Jill Del Pozzo, Ph.D.

Jill Del Pozzo is currently a postdoctoral fellow in Clinical Neuropsychology and Rehabilitation Research in the Department of Rehabilitation and Human Performance at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and the Brain Injury Research Center. She received her PhD in Clinical Psychology, with a forensic concentration, from Montclair State University (MSU) in 2022. She is also an adjunct instructor at MSU and teaches various psychology courses to undergraduates. Jill received an M.A. in Clinical Psychology from Columbia University in 2012 and a B.A. from Seton Hall University in 2010. Jill’s research is focused on addressing the significant gaps in research and care that exist for individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) in underserved populations, including justice-involved, Veteran, and LGBTQ+ populations. Specifically, her work aims to understand the distribution and patterns of TBI and its associated outcomes in sexual and gender minority populations in order to provide care that is informed by diversity and inclusive practices to such individuals living with TBI. Jill is also actively involved in both community and professional service, including working at a soup kitchen, serving as a counselor at Camp Sunshine in Maine, reviewing for academic conferences and journals, and serving on several professional committees. In her free time, she enjoys ice hockey, playing volleyball, spending time with her family, friends, and golden retrievers, Benny and Riley, baking, reading, traveling, and binge-watching TV shows.
