Recently, Chang was with Vox, where he held the posts of first a graphics reporter and then a senior reporter. He was also a senior data editor at The Connecticut News Project and held the post of data journalist at The Boston Globe.
He also served as NHL writer and associate editor at ESPN.
Chang received his bachelor’s and master’s degree from New York University.
