"But the most impressive fact is that gravity is simple. It is simple to
state the principles completely and not have left any vagueness for anybody
to change the ideas of the law. It is simple, and therefore it is beautiful."
- R. P. Feynman

I am a Graduate Fellow at Penn State University working in the Institute for Gravitation and the Cosmos. My research interests include classical and quantum gravity, as well as the underlying geometry and algebra. I also enjoy studying associated relativistic phenomena through computer simulation, such as cosmological structure formation and black hole dynamics.

Here you will find some informal posts, my CV and publications. I've also posted links to my open-source software projects on github. You may contact me at jwkennington@psu.edu.

Away from the key and chalk boards, I spend most of my time hiking, stargazing, and baking sourdough breads.
