I'm Alvin Chang, a journalist
who likes data, doodling, and code.
Hello! I'm the head of visuals and data at the Guardian US. I'm also a part-time assistant professor at the New School.
I enjoy covering how small decisions accrue into invisible problems that lead to discrimination, segregation, and ultimately dehumanization. And I make those things visible using data viz, interactives, cartoons, and videos.
I've been a data and visual journalist at Vox, the Wall Street Journal, ESPN, the Boston Globe, and the Connecticut Mirror. I grew up in Kansas and I have a master's degree from NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program. I was featured in the The Best American Infographics.
Please feel free to reach out for any reason! I enjoy random chats.
