Davon studies inequality by focusing on how we ascribe value and worth through things like scores, ratings, and rankings. He leverages a variety of empirical contexts in his research with his core work rooted in credit markets. His dissertation centers innovations in algorithmic and machine learning approaches to consumer credit scoring to understand what inequality looks like in an algorithmic age.
