Jenny Wang was born in Chapel Hill, although she spent most of her life in the Midwest before returning to NC. She joined the NCSSM community in January 2023 as an Instructor of Chemistry on our Durham campus. She has always enjoyed teaching and has worked with students of all ages (pre-K through college), teaching everything from swim lessons to reading skills to chemistry! She received her bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Occidental College and her master’s in chemistry from Northwestern University, where she researched nanoscale materials. In her free time, she enjoys cooking and baking, playing video games, reading, and spending time with her partner Jon and their cats Ziti and Gnocchi.
