Davis King's Research


My current work for Bank of America involves researching interest rate models, their calibration, and their predictions for the pricing dynamics of our mortgage servicing portfolio.

As a Computer Science PhD candidate in Georgia Tech's GVU Center, I researched 3D compression. I have also researched mobile devices and information security at Tech; international trade and politics as an undergraduate in Princeton's Woodrow Wilson School; and complex adapative systems as a certificate student in Princeton's Program in Applied and Computational Math. My work has been funded by an Intel Fellowship, two Hewlett-Packard Research Internships, a GVU Seed Grant, and several professors' NSF grants.

I prefer projects that involve working with multidisciplinary teams and that require understanding both the technology and the needs and priorities of real-world users or businesses. My research interests include:
