Adam Blum


Adam Blum, class of 2025, is a physics and math student at Kenyon. As a kid, he liked watching documentaries about physics. Watching Neil deGrass Tyson and others summoning galaxies in their hands tickled his little brain and he decided that he liked physics. Lately, Adam has been tickling his slightly larger brain with less visually appealing, but equally interesting cosmology work. He is currently working with general computation on GPUs using Cuda C++ by Nvidia. The GPU’s parallel computation ability helps optimize fourier transforms that are used for spectral method calculations.

When Adam isn’t doing math or physics, he’s usually playing frisbee, lifting weights at the gym, or biking. He enjoys a good night’s sleep when he can manage it, and loves to eat interesting food.
