Name: Jennifer Zhao
Class: 2018

My name is Jennifer, an ’18 from New York City. I’m a Biological Chemistry major and a Chinese Language and Literature minor. On campus, I’m involved in research, the Stem Collective LLC, Volunteers for Cancer Patients (VCP), and the Tutoring Clearinghouse as a Chemistry Resident Expert. I’m working on a senior honors thesis in chemistry, with my project focusing on the synthesis of novel organic compounds. I spent my terms off campus working as a math and verbal coach to middle schoolers in summer 2015, studying abroad in Beijing in fall 2015, working at Close Concerns (a diabetes and obesity informatics company) in fall 2016, and researching for my honors thesis in summer 2017. In my spare time I enjoy running, hiking, and spending time with friends. I’m a pre-pharmacy student, so if you would like to know more about pharmacy, feel free to ask me any questions!
