David Preiss FRS (born 1947) is a professor of mathematics at the University of Warwick[1] 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]

Preiss is recognised as having a unique lecturing style that blends together a multimedia demonstration and vocal lecturing: this has brought him much peer attention from within the Warwick Mathematics Institute.

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