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

We investigate, analyze and explain paranormal experiences within varieties of psi functioning and post-mortem survival. We employ a mix of technologies for audio, imaging, and environmental sensing for a convergent 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 in the public domain. This work employs topic discovery models to explore semantics that characterize varieties of paranormal experiences

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 philosophy is explained in the slideshare presentation Consciousness, Capacities and Communication

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

The Maryland Transcommunication Experiment blends signals and natural language processing within a probabilistic design.
