University of Hertfordshire

Professor Richard Wiseman



I started my working life as a professional magician, and was one of the youngest members of The Magic Circle.  I then obtained a degree in psychology from University College London and a doctorate from the University of Edinburgh.

I currently hold Britain’s only Professorship in the Public Understanding of Psychology.  My work has been published in a wide range of academic journals and cited in over 20 introductory textbooks.

I am a Member of the Inner Magic Circle, an Honorary Fellow of the British Science Association, and a Fellow of the Rationalist Association.
