Welcome! I am LinChiat Chang, Ph.D., an independent contractor specializing in data analytics and research methodology. I started working on applied research contracts in 1998 in Columbus, OH, and continued building my solo practice after I moved to San Francisco, CA in 2003. Today, I work on engagements ranging from quick consultations on methodological issues, to complex research designs and extensive data analytics.
If you are looking for guidance on data analytics or research methodology, I can help you. I work closely with business consultants, senior executives, government agents, policy advocates, and attorneys on projects spanning a wide range of research topics. Regardless of business sector, the same core research principles apply if you wish to obtain the most valid and reliable findings possible, within budgetary constraints. You can be assured at the outset that I am committed to being completely open and transparent about my analytic techniques, and I am always happy to discuss and explain the theory and methods adopted for your project.
