Hi, I'm Jasper Chen 👋
The world is full of beautiful yet daunting mysteries. Math is my way of tackling them. I
study Applied Math in connection to Physics and Neuroscience at Brown University (class of
2024). I aim to understand physical and neural systems from first principles. An important part
of this is to find bridges between different hierarchies of complexity -- atom to molecule,
neuron to brain. Precise mathematical descriptions and rigorous quantitative
methods go a long way toward these goals.
However, I am well interested to explore and learn subjects beyond Math, Physics and
Neuroscience -- for example, cinematography, literature, design. What makes a good film, novel,
or design at an artistic level? How might these relate to human neural structure at a scientific
level? I believe that there is something to be learned in just almost anything. So I am always
open to chatting and exchanging ideas!
Outside of academic pursuits, I like to take photos and videos, watch movies, and spend too much
time on picking outfits. I am also open to industry opportunities because, again, I think that there is
something to be learned in anything.
