Kyle Zilic
Visiting Assistant Professor of Physics

Kyle Zilic is fascinated by the history and evolution of the Universe. He has worked and researched in the field of observational cosmology, designing and building a telescope to study the light left over from the Big Bang. That afterglow gives him and other researchers a glimpse into the physics of the early Universe.

At Earlham, Kyle enjoys the opportunity to teach physics to those who might never have considered it as an interest. He says Earlhamites are ‚ “heavily involved with their passions and always looking out to improve the world in which we live.”

The history and evolution of the Universe. In particular, the relic light left over from the Big Bang and the glimpse at the early Universe it affords. I also study infrared/millimeter-wave radiation, radiative and conductive heat transfer, polarimetry, and cryogenics.

The small class size and an environment which fosters a personal connection between students and faculty. The opportunity to teach physics to those who might never have considered it as an interest.

Heavily involved with their passions and always looking out to improve the world in which we live.

Watching old movies and playing various games with friends.
