Davis Vaughan, of High Point, NC, graduated in May 2017 with a degree in Mathematics for Business along with concentrations in Actuarial Science and Finance, and minors in Computer Science and Chemistry. Davis will remain at UNC Charlotte to pursue a master’s degree in Mathematical Finance with a concentration in Computational Finance. He plans to then look for a job in Charlotte at the intersection of finance, mathematics, and data science. As part of the Levine Scholars Program, Davis interned with Sterling Capital Management and spent a month exploring the urban and rural areas of Bolivia. “The internship experiences I had as a Levine Scholar allowed me to narrow my focus from chemistry, to mathematics, and finally to computational finance – a field that suits me perfectly.” During his time at UNC Charlotte, Davis started a tutoring business, Acquired Knowledge Tutoring, that helped dozens of students in a variety of subjects. “Running a tutoring business was incredibly rewarding. I was able to make an impact in other students’ lives, while simultaneously improving my own communication skills and learning to manage and schedule other tutors.” During his senior year, Davis worked as an intern for DataCamp, creating online courses to teach the R programming language using financial examples, and was the co-author of the R package, tidyquant, with the mission of providing the fastest, most scalable, and user-friendly package for financial analysis in R.
