Suppose I encounter a trusted PGP key that isn't really who they say they are. I don't want to sign their key and promote that entity.

Can I somehow show my dissidence from the trust that everyone else is giving? I didn't see anything obvious on the Wiki page

If the answer is "no", is there any research that illustrates how this could be accomplished?

No, it's up to you if you want to trust (or not) person with a lot of signs. It's just a determinant of fairness.
