Lin Victor Wang

After obtaining his Ph.D in Sociology from UNC-Chapel Hill, Victor’s interests have focused on ways to use advanced programming to automate data management, analysis, and reporting to increase efficiency and reduce error. He has worked with data from various sources (E-Diary, GWAS, GIS) in a wide range of formats (Stata, SAS, SPSS, R, Plink, CSV, SQL, YAML). He is an expert in Stata and experienced in SAS and R. During the past year, he has been involved in developing the backend server application using Ruby on Rails for a mobile data collection platform. His ultimate goal is to integrate analytics to the server application to provide individualized questionnaire, feedback, or even intervention to the survey respondents.
