Dr. Buchman holds a Ph.D. from the Indiana University Media School, and an MS in finance from Purdue. After earning tenure he left traditional higher education to develop online MBA finance courses for the University of Chicago's UNext program and pursue his dreams of adventure travel (solar eclipses, trekking the Altai Mountains of Mongolia, driving the entire US interstate highway system in an RV, and throat singing).
His lifelong interest in cosmology, nucleogenesis and the possibility of extraterrestrial life led him to serve, with six former members of the United States Congress, on the 2013 Citizen Hearing on Disclosure in Washington, DC. His research has been published in a wide variety of college textbooks and presented to the American Psychological Association, the National Association of Broadcasters, TEDx at Burning Man, the Roswell UFO Festival, the Society for Scientific Exploration, FreedomFest, the Sonoma International Film Festival, the Sundance Film Festival, and the SETI Institute's Contact: Cultures of the Imagination conference in Mountain View, CA.
