Chang was born in 1974 in Ames, Iowa, and was raised in Indiana.[1][7] He attended the California Institute of Technology for his undergraduate degree, where he studied chemistry. At Caltech, he worked with Prof. Harry B. Gray on the synthesis and characterization of metal salen complexes of manganese and vanadium, and nitrogen and oxygen transfer reactivity with these complexes, respectively.[8][9][10] Chang earned his B.S. and M.S. in Chemistry in 1997, after which he worked in the laboratory of Prof. Jean-Pierre Sauvage at the Université Louis Pasteur as a Fulbright Fellow. In 1999, he moved to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a NSF/Merck Graduate Fellow. During his doctoral studies, Chang worked in the laboratory of Prof. Daniel G. Nocera. After earning his Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry in 2002, Chang remained at MIT, working with Prof. Stephen J. Lippard as a Jane Coffin Childs Fellow.
