Brittany Ikner holds a BS in Psychology from the University of Houston. As an undergraduate, Brittany explored her interests by working as a research assistant at both Rice University and her alum. She joined staff at Texas A&M University shortly after graduating to work as a lab manager for Dr. Isaac Sabat’s Inclusion, Diversity, and Employment Lab. Brittany applied to graduate school that same year and will begin master’s coursework with UTC’s I-O Psychology program this fall.
Brittany's research interests lie at the broad intersection of public policy, I-O psychology, and education. She says one of the best things about the I-O field is the extent to which the work is interdisciplinary, because it allows I-Os to act as ‘change agents’ outside of typical workplace settings.
