Ben Janse

English Department Head & Science Teacher/Mentor

Ben has spent his whole life torn between his two great loves – science and literature. Luckily now, at Fusion, where he teaches both subjects, this is a thing of the past. Ben originally went to Boston College for Biology, attaining an undergraduate degree and completing two years of a Phd program in the subject at Michigan State. He then switched to literature and recently received his MFA in Creative Writing from The New School. He taught both subjects for several years at the undergraduate level and is excited to continue teaching at Fusion. He spends his free time working on his novel, It’s Not Safe Here, which blends a science informational style with magical realism.
