Rebecca Brossoit is an Assistant Professor in the Psychology Department at Louisiana State University. Dr. Brossoit earned her Ph.D. in Industrial and Organizational (I-O) Psychology from Colorado State University and completed a graduate traineeship in Occupational Health Psychology through the Mountain and Plains Education Research Center. She also worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Oregon Institute for Occupational Health Sciences at Oregon Health & Science University and received training in the design, implementation, and evaluation of workplace randomized controlled trial interventions.

Research Interests

  • Sleep
  • Worker Health, Safety, & Well-Being
  • Work-Life Interface
  • Nature
  • Workplace Interventions
  • Professional Issues in I-O

Dr. Brossoit’s research primarily focuses on the predictors, outcomes, and measurement of employee sleep, support for employee sleep and nonwork life, and the influence of nature on employee health and work-related outcomes. Her approach to research is interdisciplinary and involves connecting ideas from sleep science and environmental psychology with industrial-organizational psychology and occupational health psychology. Her work also has an emphasis on the experiences of working populations that are disproportionately vulnerable to issues related to sleep, health, workplace safety, and work-related stressors (e.g., immigrant workers, construction workers, contract workers, nurses, military personnel). The goals of Dr. Brossoit’s research are to ultimately benefit workers, their families and communities, the organizations they work for, and the environment.
