Greg Macnamara graduated Magna Cum Laude from Davidson in 2012 with a degree in Mathematics and a minor in Economics. At Davidson, he was a two time Captain of the varsity soccer team, Academic All-American, and 1st Team All-Southern Conference Selection. He was a Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award Nominee as well. His senior year, Davidson awarded him the Rostan Family Scholarship and nominated him for Fulbright and Marshall Scholarships. He finished his Davidson graduation requirements in the fall of his senior year in order to pursue a career in professional soccer that spring. After playing with the Charleston Battery for three weeks, however, he decided pro soccer was not for him, and returned to Davidson to finish his honors economics thesis, which he presented at the Duke Annual Economics Undergraduate Research Symposium, and work with Dr. Chartier on ranking research. He now works as an Economic Consultant at Analysis Group in Washington, DC while still collaborating with Dr. Chartier.
Andrew Liu graduated from Davidson College in 2014 with a degree in Biology. Currently, he works as a software engineer for R65 Labs, a startup investigating using wearable tech to solve issues in public health.
