The American Mathematical Society (AMS) recently published in its Notices monthly journal a long list of all the doctoral degrees conferred from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020 for mathematics and statistics. The degrees come from 242 departments in 186 universities in the U.S.
I enjoy keeping a pulse on the research realm for my field, so I went through the entire published list and picked out 48 dissertations that have high relevance to data science, machine learning, AI and deep learning. The list below is organized alphabetically by state. Enjoy!
