Professor Stephen Bloom joined Stevens in September 1967 after completing his Ph.D. at MIT. He was a distinguished researcher and teacher who made valuable contributions to mathematical analysis of computational structures and the equational properties of fixed point operations.
He served as the head of Computer Science department from 1996 to 2006, and continued to teach within the program. Professor Bloom contributed to and published countless journal articles and two books. His influence lives on in the many young faculty members he recruited, students he taught, and in the research and academic standards he nurtured.
Also a talented musician, Professor Bloom was known for giving a number of clarinet concerts at Stevens. He was an active member of the community, contributing to many educational and social causes both at Stevens and within the community at large.
Survivors include his wife, Cynthia Graae, daughters Valeria and Paula Bloom, and brother Peter Bloom.
Announcement about a memorial service at Stevens will follow.
