Dr. May has managed complex, interdisciplinary
research projects for the US federal government since 1985. He presided
over 70% of the funding and 85% of the data collection for the government’s
24-year involvement in parapsychological research. His responsibilities
included fund raising, personnel management, project administration
and planning, and he was the guiding force for the technical research
effort. Currently, Dr. May is the Executive Director of the Cognitive
Sciences Laboratory which now resides within the Laboratories for
Fundamental Research. Prior to this appointment, Dr. May was the
Director of a similar program at Science Applications International
Corporation and before that at SRI International. Dr. May has been
involved in anomalous mental phenomena research since 1972.
After obtaining a Ph.D., he accumulated
over 12 years experience in experimental nuclear physics research,
which included the study of nuclear reaction mechanism and nuclear
structure. Dr. May’s accelerator experience includes a variety of
tandem Van de Graaff generators and cyclotrons operating under 50
million electron volts. Other specialize experience includes four
years of g -ray spectroscopy, one year of trace-element analysis
(x-ray, and a -particle techniques), numerical analysis, Monte Carlo
techniques, digital signal processing, and cardiac blood flow research.
In addition, he has conducted physiology research through the careful
investigation of the efficacy of biofeedback in a clinical setting.
Dr. May is fluent in a variety of
3-GL and 4-GL computer languages including C, FORTRAN, various machine
codes, and SQL and VB4.
Dr. May’s eclectic background has
provided him with significant expertise in a variety of seemingly
unrelated disciplines; Thus, he is ideally suited and experienced
to direct interdisciplinary research.
