Christopher Meyer is an Associate Professor of Management at Baylor University. He received his Ph.D. degree in Business Administration from Michigan State University. Meyer’s research interests lie at the intersection of organizational interaction and motivation. Specifically, his research focuses on the impact of such motivational forces as perceptions of fairness, emotions and power on negotiated outcomes or the structure of negotiation. Meyer has taught upper level Organizational Behavior classes and Negotiation classes at the Undergrad, MBA, Executive MBA, and Executive Education levels.

Meyer’s research has been published in Journal of Applied Psychology, Academy of Management Journal, Research in Personnel and Human Resources Management, the Handbook of Organizational Justice, the Handbook of Negotiation and Culture, and the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association.

Before returning to school, Meyer worked in a number of management, sales, and marketing positions in industry. He has over eight years of business experience, mostly in high-tech (software) firms in the start-up phase of business, to complement his teaching and research.
