Roger Nelson, PhD, has a professional background in experimental psychology and psychophysiology, supplemented by work in physics, statistical methods, and engineering (all grounded in a background of art and philosophy). He focused on extraordinary aspects of human consciousness in 1980, when he began coordinating research at the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) laboratory at Princeton University. In 1998 Roger formed the Global Consciousness Project (GCP), an international collaboration of 75 researchers, colleagues, and friends from all walks of life, with the mission to collect continuous data of a kind that might allow detection of faint glimmerings of a noosphere, or global consciousness. The project is explained in depth, with access to data and results on the GCP websit.
