Mike Davies has joined the EERC team as a Budget Analyst. He supports researchers and project managers in the areas of cost management, personnel planning, and cost projections, and he develops detailed cost proposals, manages and oversees multiple project budgets, and updates principal investigators on a regular basis regarding their projects’ financial status.

Mike holds a bachelor's degree in Accounting from the University of North Dakota. He comes from a family with deep roots in accounting and finance as well as law practice, so accounting was a natural choice for him to study.

“The people here are fantastic. There aren’t enough hours in a day to express how welcoming and warm everyone has been thus far,” Mike said of the EERC. Mike proved he’s a good sport when he allowed himself to be drafted as a goalie during the 2nd Annual EERC Hockey Tournament recently.

A native of Plymouth, Minnesota, Mike comes from a large family (he and his twin sister have 28 first cousins). A “big hockey guy,” he loves sports and outdoor activities, and he’s not afraid of a challenge. During his first experience with downhill skiing, he found himself skiing down a black diamond slope by mistake and took roughly an hour to reach the bottom. Outdoor sports and running numbers in his head aside, Mike also likes “just being a couch potato and watching a good movie with my fiancĂ© and our two spoiled cats.”
