Jenny Wong (Principal Investigator)

I'm an analytical environmental chemist interested in understanding the role and impact of chemical processes occurring in the atmosphere. I obtained my BSc, MSc, and PhD chemistry degrees at the University of Toronto (undergraduate research in the Jockusch, Donaldson, and Abbatt groups; graduate research in the Abbatt group) before moving (still not far from home!) to do my post-doctoral research in the Weber and Nenes groups at Georgia Institute of Technology. I joined the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Mount Allison University in Aug. 2019. 

Teaching ('22-'23): CHEM2411 (Analytical I), CHEM3421 (Analytical II),  CHEM3521 (Environmental Chem.), CHEM4991 (Analytical Environmental Chem.)
