Scott J. Kenyon

Senior Scientist

Scott Kenyon works primarily as a theorist, using numerical simulations to explore the formation and evolution of planetary systems, the origin and spatial distribution of hypervelocity and runaway stars in the Milky Way, and the physical structure and the evolution of interacting binary systems. He completed a B. S. in Physics at Arizona State University and a Ph. D. in Astronomy at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. After a CfA Fellowship, he joined the permanent Federal staff. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and received the Copernicus Medal from the Nicolaus Copernicus University.
