Vince Wang conducts research at the Shimberg Center for Housing Studies at University of Florida in Gainesville. Wang’s research focuses on the geography of inequality and opportunity in distressed neighborhoods, specifically on examining the causes of segregation, poverty dispersal housing programs, and how they collectively affect the prospects of publicly subsidized low-income households. He is currently developing an Opportunity Housing Locator to help families with rental vouchers find affordable housing in opportunity-rich neighborhoods.
Wang has worked on several U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development grant projects, and his work has won awards from the Florida Planning and Zoning Association and the Florida Chapter of the American Planning Association.
