Davis is the Cardinal Service Outreach and Engagement Coordinator for the Haas Center. He joined the Haas Center in August 2019 and supports the Cardinal Service initiative by advising students about service opportunities, coordinating outreach events, and developing outreach opportunities.
Prior to working at the Haas Center, Davis served as a Bill Emerson National Hunger Fellow, exploring the intersections of social justice, food insecurity, and poverty through both community- and policy-oriented roles. At CAPI USA in Minneapolis, Davis developed a volunteer program to staff the organization’s food pantry and pilot a “food rescue” program to increase the amount of donated food. At The Root Cause Coalition in Washington, D.C., Davis conducted research about social determinants of health interventions to support the national health equity coalition. Davis hopes to share his experiences from his post-graduate fellowship year and service experiences at Stanford with current students.
Davis graduated from Stanford University as a human biology major in 2018. During his time at Stanford, Davis was involved in numerous student groups, including Alternative Breaks @ Stanford, Stanford Pacific Free Clinic, Stanford Khmer Association, Stanford Asian American Students’ Association, and the Stanford Hmong Student Union. He conducted an honors thesis examining intergenerational perceptions of well-being among the Cambodian American community in the Bay Area. In addition to public service, community engagement, and social justice issues, Davis is passionate about health equity and community health.
In his free time, Davis enjoys hiking across the Bay Area, picnicking with friends, and reading novels. Nothing makes Davis happier than eating spicy food and spotting corgis.
