Cindy P. Muir (Zapata) is a Professor at the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business. She received her Ph.D. in Management and her B. S. in Psychology from the University of Florida. Dr. Muir’s research interests include individual differences, organizational justice and trust, and diversity, particularly in the context of supervisor-employee relationships. As most leaders know, a disconnect often exists between leader behaviors and employee perceptions of those same behaviors even in spite of their best efforts; because of the importance of leader-direct report relationships, Muir aims to further understand that divide by studying factors that exacerbate or minimize said disconnect. Her work has been published in top journals, including the Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Applied Psychology and Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, among others. Currently, she serves as an Associate Editor for the Academy of Management Journal.
