Ágnes Cseh

Hungarian Academy of Sciences


Dr. Ágnes Cseh is a researcher at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest, where she leads the research group 'Efficient algorithms for allocation problems'. Prior to that, she completed her PhD in mathematics at TU Berlin and then worked at the Icelandic Centre of Excellence in Theoretical Computer Science in Reykjavík. Her main research focus is the algorithmic study of matching problems under preferences, a topic that has become especially popular since the 2012 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences given to Roth and Shapley. With the advance of technology and globalization, centralized and computer-led matching schemes are being established in an increasing number of real-life matching problems, such as allocating residents to hospitals, students to schools, or kidney donors to patients.

At the Digital Future Science Match, she will talk about "Heading Towards an All-European Kidney Exchange Network".
