work on Hilbert's tenth problem
Davis's parents were Jewish immigrants to the US from Łódź, Poland, and married after they met again in New York City. Davis grew up in the Bronx, where his parents encouraged him to obtain a full education.12
In 1975, Davis won the Leroy P. Steele Prize, the Chauvenet Prize, and the Lester R. Ford Award for his work on Hilbert's tenth problem.2 He became a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1982,2 and in 2012, he was selected as one of the inaugural fellows of the American Mathematical Society.4
