Office: George Mason University, David King 3077
My name is Isaac Sabat and I am a second year doctoral student in the Industrial/Organizational Psychology program at George Mason University. I was raised in South Florida, and then moved to Houston, Texas to complete my undergraduate studies at Rice University. While at Rice, I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Michele Hebl and her graduate students on all topics related to diversity and discrimination in the workplace. I became extremely passionate about studying workplace discrimination, and thus, I could not have found a better match in joining Dr. Eden King’s wonderful research team!
My research interests include all topics relevant to the psychology of discrimination. I have traditionally focused on identifying implicit stigmas of individuals in the context of the workplace, but I am also interested in studying the identity management strategies used by individuals possessing concealable stigmas. I am looking forward to being able to conduct research that can potentially benefit the lives of employees who face discrimination in the workplace.
