Professor Eatough earned a BA in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, an MA and a Ph.D., both in Industrial Organizational Psychology, from the University of South Florida.

Erin Eatough has a specific interest in occupational stress and employee well-being. Her current research focuses on the daily experience of work stressors and how such experiences can degrade self-relevant factors like self-esteem and feelings of competence. She is also interested in daily stress and health behaviors such as alcohol consumption and exercise, as well as how occupational stress can cascade into home life and vice-versa. Opportunities to work in her lab are available periodically and applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.
