Hi! I'm Emmy, and I'm too busy writing for work to actually write books centered on my own ideas. I'm hopeful this platform not only provides insights to those who stop by, but also enables a more fluid approach to my personal writing outside of my profession. I'm a professor of STEM by day, a thinker, creator, and lover by night.

The key concept that drove the creation of this page is the extrapolation of ideas from The Calculus to life and good living. What is good living? I define it as many have before me: Know Thyself. Whereas the calculus has provided neat tools for slicing elements of nature into an infinite number of infinitesimal pieces to gather information about the system as a whole and how it has changed over time, it may not be quite obvious how these mathematical tools can be used to gain key insights between our lived experiences, the emotions they trigger, and our responses to them. When we approach self-actualization and self-awareness and refine our ability to recognize how we feel at any given instant, we harness the ability to take control of our destinies and shape them to our own betterment and happiness.
