Glenn began his academic and professional life as an economist, but subsequently followed a conversion path into psychology in order to pursue a strong desire to conduct parapsychological research. During his master’s degree course, he carried out an extra-sensory perception study using a majority voting paradigm under the supervision of Prof Richard Wiseman at the University of Hertfordshire. He subsequently moved to the University of Northampton to undertake a doctoral research programme, supervised by Prof Chris Roe and Dr Simon Sherwood. He was awarded his PhD in 2013 after completing four progressive experimental studies with the aim of testing various elements of Stanford’s Psi-mediated Instrumental Response theory. During his time at Northampton, Glenn also worked on collaborative research projects concerning psychokinesis, remote viewing and a test of Sheldrake’s theory of Morphic Resonance using recognition for Chinese symbols.
After graduating, Glenn worked as a lecturer in psychology in two Chinese universities (Dongbei University of Finance and Economics and Southwest University) before returning to the UK to take up a senior lectureship. He is currently employed as Head of Academic Subjects and Quality Lead at Royal Holloway International Study Centre. Nevertheless, Glenn has remained focused on continuing to develop his network of research associates in Asia. To this end, he serves as the PA’s National Liaison for China.
