Peter Bancel holds a PhD in experimental physics from the University of Pennsylvania. Following a post-doc at IBM Research, he moved to France to work with the Centre National de Recherche Scientifique in Paris and Nantes. His research interests have included quasicrystals, phase transitions in two-dimensional systems and protein crystal growth. Peter began working in psi research shortly after the US terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, when he joined a small group looking at data from the Global Consciousness Project. His decades-long investigation led to a definitive assessment of the GCP, one of psi research’s largest databases. He has published work on state-induction approaches to improving psi effect sizes, theoretical assessments of meta-analyses in psi databases and experiments with meditator cohorts on precognition. An ongoing experiment probes the interaction of psi and entanglement in quantum systems. Peter works at the Institut Métapsychique International in Paris, France.
