Rand Burnette


Rand Burnette is a Kenyon student from the class of 2021, and came to campus from a similarly isolated town in Indiana, Crawfordsville. The physics department was what first made Rand excited to come to Kenyon, and has kept him fascinated and intimidated with the opportunities available in the physics department. After a year of independent study, he joined the cosmology lab to study the scalar field models of dark matter that had been in development there.

Aside from physics, Rand finds drawing and painting to be particularly inspiring, as well as relaxing. A large portion of his free time is spent playing, watching, and if he has the time making art for games. There have also been claims made that he will be trying to take better care of himself by learning to cook, though these have yet to be substantiated.
