The Department of Psychology Welcomes Dr. Larissa (Lacie) Barber

The department of psychology is excited to introduce Dr. Larissa (Lacie) Barber. Dr Barber earned her PhD in Industrial-Organizational Psychology from Saint Louis University. Before joining the Psychology Department faculty, she was an Associate Professor in the Social/Industrial-Organizational Psychology program at Northern Illinois University. She conducts research on the topics of work-life balance, employee stress and well-being, and how sleep affects work behavior. In 2015, she received grant funding from the Society of Human Resource Management to support her work on how organizational policies and family-supportive culture affects employees’ connectedness to work via technology (workplace telepressure), and subsequently employee recovery and health.

Her research has been published in a variety of peer-reviewed outlets, including the Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Occupational Health Psychology, Stress & Health, Applied Psychology: Health and Well-Being, Organizational Research Methods, and the Journal of Organizational Behavior. In 2017, she received an Early Career Achievement Award for exceptional early career contributions to the science of occupational health psychology.

She is currently an Associate Editor at Stress & Health and part of the Editorial Review Board at Journal of Business and Psychology. Her professional affiliations include the American Psychological Association, Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, Society for the Teaching of Psychology, Association for Psychological Science, and the Society for Occupational Health Psychology.
