David Manlove is a Senior Lecturer in Computing Science at the University of Glasgow, where he has been since 1995. He is interested in algorithms for problems involving matching agents to commodities (e.g., junior doctors to hospitals, kidney patients to donors) in the presence of ordinal preferences or cardinal utilities. He has written or co-authored over 50 papers in this area, and his book "Algorithmics of Matching Under Preferences" was published in 2013. Much of this research has involved designing algorithms to cope with NP-hard optimization problems arising in healthcare-related settings, working in collaboration with the National Health Service in the UK. He is a member of the steering committee of the multi-disciplinary MATCH-UP workshop (International Workshop on Matching Under Preferences), having co-organised the first and third meetings in the series.
