Hello there! My name is Jacob, and I am a chemistry and math student in my final year of undergraduate schooling. Topics which I especially enjoy researching for fun and talking with others about include:
- The study of how the expected value of one's healthspan and/or lifespan can be increased.
- Fun Theory, especially as it informs the process of building positive social relationships, and being a better friend.
- Effective Altruism
I also really love My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The idea that valuing others and tolerating everypony should be the norm, rather than the exception seems like a beautiful idea to me.
Academically and professionally, I am interested in operations research in particular, and science and math in general.
Since I am a human, and therefore prone to having feelings, I do not operate under Crocker's Rules. However, I do greatly appreciate it when others give me advice in a kind manner.
