Noah Eisenkraft studies how people perceive and react to one another in organizations. 

Recently, he has examined how individual differences in “affective presence” influence team functioning and performance, the accuracy of first impressions, why some individuals are better negotiators than others, and the relationship between emotion-perception and emotion-recognition skill.  

Dr. Eisenkraft has conducted research and consulted with industry leaders and startup companies in patient safety, online dating, social news, startup incubation and corporate hiring. 

The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology and Psychological Science have published his research.

Dr. Eisenkraft received his PhD from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, where he also earned a master’s degree in management and organizational behavior. He received his bachelor’s degree in psychology, magna cum laude, from Harvard College.
