Kyle Slinker

Instructor of Physics

Durham

Joined NCSSM in October 2017

Kyle Slinker has been an Instructor of Physics at NCSSM since October 2017. He has taught many iterations of the introductory physics courses as well as Astrophysics and REX Physics. He has enjoyed getting to know the students both in the classroom and out, especially as a member of the CAAS and has been particularly impressed by the plays he has seen! Kyle grew up in Washington State and earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Washington in Seattle before coming to North Carolina for graduate school. He earned his master’s and doctoral degrees in physics at UNC-Chapel Hill, where he worked on simulations of merging black holes and gravitational waves. He taught a wide variety of courses while in grad school, which is when he discovered how much he enjoys teaching. He spends his off time with his black cat named Snowy and seeing if metal music translates to an acoustic guitar.
