Parapsychology is the study of psi phenomena. Psi experiences involve apparent transfers of information or energy without the physical senses or known inference


Disciplines within parapsychology explore extended capacities of the mind to include: extrasensory perception; mind-matter interaction; and post-mortem survival of consciousness


Survival is the notion human personality, or elements of it, continue after bodily death


Survival research encompasses: reincarnation; near-death experiences; nearing death awareness; mediumship; after-death communication; and ghosts, poltergeists and hauntings


Maryland Paranormal Research ® conducts explorations of paranormal phenomena through science, technology and parapsychology


We employ a mix of technologies for audio, imaging, and environmental sensing to provide a layered picture of events


Our audio methods employ varieties of sound stages comprised of pre-amplifier/mixers, compressors, equalizers, low-noise amplifiers, vocal processors and digital noise filters


Our imaging methods are based in computer vision, making use of algorithms and sensors for change detection, movement tracking (optical flow), thresholds and gradients, face and object recognition, depth sensing and thermal imaging


Our data acquisition methods employ machine-synchronized sensors to continuously monitor environmental conditions as well as a random event generator, which is a statistical device that has been used in parapsychology for over four decades


Prior to any investigation, we conduct historical, property, genealogical and other area research to understand the timelines and context of reports and claims


Off the field, our work involves applications of machine learning to case collections and surveys. This work mainly employs topic discovery models to explore semantic contexts or relationships to characterize varieties of paranormal experiences


Maryland Paranormal Research® only investigates and documents potential paranormal activity. We refer clients to other resources, such as their local clergy, to help mitigate a haunting


All investigations are confidential. With permission, Maryland Paranormal Research® may publish/share selected findings within agreed guidelines that preserve the client’s privacy


Maryland Paranormal Research ® is registered trademark and was founded October 1, 2011


We have been featured in local and national media including: University of Maryland; Baltimore Fishbowl; The Diamondback; and on the TV series A Haunting (Discovery Networks)


For training and research purposes, we undertake several ghost expeditions at historic locations per year (Spring/Summer/Fall)


In 2012, expeditions were conducted at University of Maryland, College Park, and Historic Savage Mill


In 2013, expeditions were conducted at Historic Cockey’s Tavern, Westminster MD, and Brunswick Heritage Museum, Brunswick MD


In 2014 expeditions were conducted in Maryland and Pennsylvania at: Sykesville Town House (Sykesville MD); Benson-Hammond House (Linthicum Heights MD); Mount Ida Home (Ellicott City MD); Abel Colley Tavern (Smock PA); and Nemacolin Castle (Brownsville PA)


In 2015 expeditions were conducted in Leonardtown MD (Tudor Hall and Old County Jail) with assistance from Maryland Ghost Trackers, Oakland MD (B&O Railroad Museum) and Salisbury MD (Poplar Hill Mansion)


In 2016 expeditions were conducted in Port Conway VA (Belle Grove Plantation), Hagerstown MD (Saint James School), Linthicum MD (Benson-Hammond House) and Princess Anne MD (Somerset County Jail)


In 2017 expeditions were conducted in Dundalk MD (Dundalk-Patapsco Neck Historical Society), Baltimore MD (Lexington Market Underground) and Brunswick MD (Brunswick Heritage Museum) which was filmed by WUSA9


Our research attempts to explore and discover convergent evidence of psi and survival phenomena


The exploration approach is explained in the slideshare presentation Consciousness, Capacities and Communication


Specific experiments and lines of research are in the slideshare presentation Research, Discovery and Exploration


Our work emphasizes instrumental trans communication insofar as audio provides the most consistent evidence. Audio evidence can help some process grief of loss


A core effort is the Maryland Transcommunication Experiment, which blends signals and natural language processing within a probabilistic design
