York Dobyns, PhD
York Dobyns was born in 1960, the child of two anthropologists, Henry Dobyns and Cara Richards. In his early life he focused intensely on academic studies, completing a PhD in physics at Princeton University in 1987.
After getting his degree Professor Dobyns found himself fascinated by consciousness research and spent almost twenty years working at the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research program under Robert Jahn and Brenda Dunne. This research persuaded him that human consciousness can both affect its environment, and perceive that environment, in ways not yet recognized by the mainstream scientific consensus.
Dr. Dobyns has been an active member of the Society for Scientific Exploration since 1992 and has served several terms as an elective Councilor for that organization.
