Leslie B. Hammer is a professor of industrial and organizational psychology at Portland State University.
Hammer's research has focused on the difficulties in coordinating the demands of work and family that stem from factors within individuals and their close relationships, as well as factors in the work organization. More recently, she has also begun to examine the concept of work-family positive spillover, including both work and well-being outcomes.
Hammer has written articles, book chapters, and a book, Working Couples Caring for Children and Aging Parents: Effects on Work and Well-Being (with M. Neal) on the difficulties in managing work and family demands.
She received her bachelor's degree from James Madison University, her master's and doctorate from Bowling Green State University.
