Noah Zandan uses data science to illuminate hidden (and often unconscious) messages in our communications — and suggests ways that speakers might heighten their impact.

With his startup Quantified Communications, Noah Zandan scientifically drills down to the physiological and psychological roots of how we communicate. Focusing on data-driven analysis of body language, verbal content, and audience influence, Quantified Communcations offers leaders new pathways to increasing charisma and confidence. In his viral TED-Ed Lesson “The language of lying,” he exposes four ways in which liars unwittingly reveal themselves.

Zandan is also the co-founder and executive director of the Rockway Foundation, a nonprofit philanthropic organization spearheading education initiatives in Latin America.
