Raymond Chang was born in Hong Kong and grew up in Shanghai and Hong Kong. He received his B.Sc. degree in chemistry from London University, and his Ph.D. in chemistry from Yale University. After doing postdoctoral research at Washington University and teaching for a year at Hunter College of the City University of New York, he joined the chemistry department at Williams College.

Professor Chang served on the American Chemical Society Examination Committee, the National Chemistry Olympiad Examination, and the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) Committee. He wrote books on physical chemistry, industrial chemistry, and physical science. He also coauthored books on the Chinese language, children’s picture books, and a novel for young readers.

Jason Overby was born in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and raised in Clarksville, Tennessee. He received his B.S. in chemistry and political science from the University of Tennessee at Martin. After obtaining his Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from Vanderbilt University, Jason conducted postdoctoral research at Dartmouth College.

Since joining the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the College of Charleston, South Carolina, Jason has taught a variety of courses ranging from general chemistry to advanced inorganic chemistry. He is also interested in the integration of technology into the classroom, with a particular focus on adaptive learning. Additionally, he conducts research with undergraduates in inorganic and organic synthetic chemistry as well as computational organometallic chemistry.

In his free time, he enjoys boating, bowling, and cooking. He is also involved with USA Swimming as a nationally certified starter and stroke-and-turn official. He lives in South Carolina with his wife Robin and two daughters, Emma and Sarah.
