Nathan Meikle is a postdoctoral research and teaching associate at the Mendoza College of Business. He researches social perception and its implications for organizations. Specifically, he examines the cues people use to form impressions (e.g., confidence, deference) and the biases that affect people's perceptions (e.g., motivated reasoning, exponential growth bias). For example, he is currently examining people's perceptions of artificial intelligence and the ethical and organizational implications of these perceptions. His research on social perception and bias has been published in the Harvard Business Review, Research in Organizational Behavior, The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, and The Oxford Handbook of Advice.
Before starting his PhD, Nathan graduated from Stanford Law School. He also worked as a college football sideline reporter for 10 years, after playing football for Brigham Young University. He is the author of the memoir Little Miss: A father, his daughter and rocket science.
