David Preiss FRS (born January 21, 1947) is a Czech and British mathematician, specializing in mathematical analysis. He is a professor of mathematics at the University of Warwick[1]

Preiss is a recipient of the Ostrowski Prize (2011) and the winner of the 2008 London Mathematical Society Pólya Prize[2] for his 1987 result on Geometry of Measures, where he solved the remaining problem in the geometric theoretic structure of sets and measures in Euclidean space.[3] He was an invited speaker at the ICM 1990 in Kyoto. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society (2004) and a Foreign Fellow of the Learned Society of the Czech Republic (2003).

He is associate editor of the mathematical journal Real Analysis Exchange.[4]
