Dr. William T. Joines, PhD
Dr. Bill Joines has a B.S. and M.S. degree from N.C. State University and a Ph.D. from Duke University in electrical engineering, where he is now a Professor in the Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed articles in technical journals and numerous book chapters. Currently he has a BIAL grant for measuring and analyzing mentally induced optical photon emission from the body and electrical charge accumulation on the body of practiced healers and volunteers (shams). In the 1960's and 1970's Dr. Joines served as a consultant-investigator at the Psychical Research Foundation (PRF) with William Roll on poltergeist and haunting events, as well as in investigations of channeling or mediumship, where the goal was to record as much data using instruments as the situation allowed. Dr. Joines continues to seek a clearer understanding of the conscious and non-conscious mechanisms that drive paranormal events.
