Alum Jason Davis starts new tenure track position at UNC

Jason Davis, an alum of UCSB’s graduate geography program, will be starting a new tenure track position at the UNC this fall. Professor Lopez Carr enthusiastically supported Jason for the position, crediting him with “great intellectual curiosity and perseverance” that “translates into a superior research effort.” He will be researching the influence of labor migration on a range of demographic, health, education, and environmental outcomes throughout the developing world. On a personal note, we are encouraged that Jason is recovering from several months of medical treatment and ready to start this exciting new chapter in his life with his wife, Jess, who received a dual appointment with Jason as an OBGYN physician at the UNC hospital, and their son, Jackson (who will surely be a Tar Heel fan for life!)
