Lucy Pringle was educated in England, France and Switzerland and has travelled widely, spending twelve years in Jamaica where her elder son was born. She is a Founder member of the Centre for Crop Circle Studies. She is widely known and is an international authority on the subject and the pioneer researcher into the effects of electromagnetic fields on living systems. This includes the physiological and psychological effects reported by people after visiting or being in the vicinity of a crop formation. Also animal behaviour, remote effects, luminosities, mechanical failures and audio effects. Her research shows measured changes in the human hormones following short exposure to the circles, also changes in brain activity.
Recent research in NIR (Near Infra Red) revealed a marked increase in the protein content in grain taken from inside a crop formation.
She works with scientists from all over the world, and in November 2014 she was one of the speakers at the institute of Science and Astrophysics in Sofia, Bulgaria which was not only a success but in the follow up made good progress with the scientists from Ireland and Norway being part of the action group to set up a centre at the Institute based on the principles of contemporary science and co-creative science as a functioning unit. The exciting part of the research is that this will pioneer these protocols for the first time with any institute.
