Paranormal researcher Kristen Luman adds her expertise.

Kristen is co-lead investigator and a paranormal researcher. In fact, she received her degree in psychology with an emphasis on parapsychology from Portland State University. This will come in handy in the field when she has to interview witnesses who are coming off of supernatural experiences.

"People always ask me what I do when I'm not investigating," she recently shared on her Facebook page. "I research energy and the mind and teach others about hypnotherapy." 

We look forward to seeing what this parapsychologist brings to the team on Ghost Hunters.

A natural skeptic, Brandon seeks to "find cold hard facts, to prove or disprove" supernatural sightings, according to his official website. The over 200 investigations he's conducted to date have taken him to mental hospitals, prisons, and famously haunted sites like Alcatraz Island and the South Pittsburgh Hospital.

Paranormal investigator Brian Murray is looking for answers.

As a paranormal investigator, Brian's main goal is "to search for answers to the unknown." He has conducted more than 200 investigations and joins the ranks of his co-stars who've founded their own teams with his most recent ghost-hunting group: Riverbend Paranormal.

When not investigating the supernatural, Brian works in construction — which has provided him with intimate knowledge of buildings and plumbing — so he's the first to assess and debunk many situations home owners consider paranormal that are actually just structural issues with the house.

According to Brian, "In this business, nobody has all the right answers except for the dead themselves."

Adventurer Richel Stratton hunts for the truth.

Before joining a paranormal investigation team two years ago in Illinois, Richel did most of her decade-long ghost hunting on her own. She's looked into both private and public sites ranging from the Mineral Springs Hotel to the former psychiatric hospital Ashmore Estates.

She and her husband Chris have two adorable kids, and when Richel isn't investigating the supernatural, she works as a dental hygienist. Richel firmly believes in getting hard evidence in order to prove that a haunting is real, but enters every investigation with an open mind.

Don't miss this new team's journey through the country when the reboot of Ghost Hunters premieres August 21 at 9 p.m. on A&E.
