You don’t hear this everyday in Louisville, but our standards at IQS Research are very high. That is why this is the 7th year we’ve participated in a program to bring Yale undergraduate students to Louisville for summer internships.

Annie Wang is a rising senior majoring in the History of Science, History of Medicine, and she’s bringing her skills and inquisitiveness to Louisville this summer. She’s part of Bulldogs In The Bluegrass a 10-week internship program, which matches Yale students with Louisville companies. And we’re proud to have her as our research analyst intern.

In her stay with us, Annie is getting exposure to all facets of research encompassing everything from data collection to analysis to reporting and client meetings to sales meetings to internal meetings to company breakfasts. In the last few weeks, Annie has worked on several IQS Research projects dealing with college education and the reasons some students don’t succeed, membership engagement trying to understand the relationship between satisfaction and membership churn as well as a market opinion study understanding the neighborhood specific weaknesses in the restaurant and food offerings in Louisville. And in two weeks, she’ll begin working on a research project gathering wages and benefits data across the state of Kentucky.

Previously, Annie has worked in various medical and hospital settings, conducting research on antimetabolite drugs used in the implantation of glaucoma drainage devices.

Upon graduation, she wants to work in health policy and management, and hopes to do research on developing policies that help reduce socioeconomic disparities in children’s health.

Annie comes to us through Connecticut by way of Santa Monica, California. In her spare time, Annie enjoys playing violin, and has been involved with chamber music at Yale during her college career. She also enjoys horseback riding, cooking, and traveling.
