Jeri Brittin, Ph.D.
Social and Behavioral Sciences Director
“I love asking questions about the outcomes design can achieve and figuring out ways to answer those questions.”
Jeri, who has a doctorate in philosophy, is a public health research scientist who plans and conducts research across facility types, including schools, workplaces, health and behavioral facilities and communities. She leads the social and behavioral sciences team to uncover design outcomes to inform future facilities.
Among her many skillsets, Jeri is proficient in strategy development, research design, quantitative and qualitative analysis, systems science and methods and measurements. She is passionate about leveraging design to achieve strategic outcomes and measuring those outcomes in order to document change.
Combining a degree in design with a background encompassing industries such as technology, arts, financial services, academia, marketing and design, one of Jeri’s strong suits is the ability to think “big picture” while also diving into the details. She is compelled to bring science and design together, believing that each has much to offer the other.
