Dream Team Recommender (DTR) is a web application that was deployed to facilitate the assembly of scientific teams.
The DTR application uses matching and ranking algorithms for individual faculty members to self-assemble teams or for research managers to staff research teams based on individual attributes (such as skills or areas of expertise) and prior networks (such as co-authorship). The application utilizes Python Django web platform and network libraries such as NetworkX to calculate potential teams and is based on the Northwestern Scholars database.
