I'm Alvin Chang, a reporter
who likes data, doodling, and code.
I'm currently a reporter on a new team at the Wall Street Journal, where we're launching a digital magazine.
I enjoy covering how small decisions accrue into invisible problems that lead to segregation, discrimination, and ultimately dehumanization. And I make those things visible using data viz, interactives, cartoons, and videos.
I've worked at Vox, ESPN, the Boston Globe, and the Connecticut Mirror. I teach data visualization at the New School. My data journalism has been featured in the The Best American Infographics. I have a master's degree from NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program. I'm from Kansas and live in Brooklyn.
