Thank you for visiting my blog. I am Ellen Lee, a rising freshman at Cornell University.
Computers are many times more powerful than the human mind. Computers can make advanced calculations with such precision and efficiency that they far outcompete the smartest human. When I was a child, I believed that this miraculous technology was only accessible to old professors who had spent their entire lives learning about computer science. I never dreamed that I would one day be able to create useful programs, but the thought of making my computer bend to my will was far too attractive. I learned Mathematica (along with Calculus) from Dr. James H. Choi. After learning the basics of programming in Mathematica, my interest immediately took off. Soon, I was skilled enough with the program that “real” scientists used in their research. This experience is detailed here.
This website is mainly a collection of my science research, although many posts will just have small experiments. The vast majority of my posts use the program Mathematica (versions are usually up to date).
