Is there a general name for this type of airfoil? I'm having trouble finding any information on it so if anyone knows anything about it please let me know!

That's a reflexed trailing edge airfoil. Its center of pressure moves forward with decreasing AOA giving it an almost constant pitching moment. It is often used for flying wings.
