Ms. Davis holds master's degrees in Computer Science and Medical Physics. She brings to the classroom 12 years of experience in the fields of clinical research technology, decision support services and data warehousing. As a medical physicist, she worked for several years as a co-investigator on NCI funded grant at the University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston Texas. She worked as an Oracle DBA/systems engineer at a datacenter that warehoused government healthcare information technology. She was responsible for the design and implementation of many data driven applications on the web, with her primary focus on the backend including data modeling, analytics design, scientific computing, and database technology.
Ms. Davis considers herself a lifelong learner and is currently pursuing her PhD in HealthCare Informatics here at the University of South Carolina.
