About Mr. Davis

I am so excited to join the Honors College team and for the opportunity to collaborate with the amazing staff, faculty fellows and students in the Honors College and the Generation Honors program!

I was born in Buffalo, New York, and spent my early years in Amherst. I moved to Treviso, Italy when I was 8 years old and attended high school in Italy! I enjoy playing basketball and spending time with friends, family and loved ones.

I moved back to the Buffalo region to attend Daemen University. I received a dual degree majoring in Mathematics and Liberal Studies with minors in Art History, Philosophy and Psychology. I graduated from the University at Buffalo in 2020 with a master's in Higher Education Administration. Since then, I have furthered my studies with the continuation of a second master's in Education Studies with a Comparative and Global Education focus and completed two advanced certificates in International Education Data Analysis and Qualitative Methodology. I am deepening my knowledge in my research interests in higher education by pursuing a doctorate in Higher Education at UB's Graduate School of Education (GSE). I am a third-year student in the program, also working on completing the Applied Statistics Analysis advanced certificate. I served as co-chair for the Committee for Social Justice and Inclusion (CSJI) and as an elected student representative on the Equity, Diversity, Justice and Inclusion (EDJI) committee in GSE.

My previous work experience at UB involved a wonderful opportunity as an academic advisor with Student Support Services, working in Athletics as an academic performance specialist, then becoming the student-athlete development assistant and a teaching assistant for calculus in the Gifted Math Program.

Student success, well-being and belonging have always been at the heart of my work and passions. I look forward to working with our Honors College and Generation Honors Program students to help them reach their goals and aspirations!
