Fred Mannering is the Charles Pankow Professor of Civil Engineering and he also holds a courtesy appointment in the Department of Economics at Purdue. His research interests are in the application of econometric and statistical methods to a variety of engineering problems, highway safety, transportation economics, automobile demand, and travel behavior. He has published extensively in these fields with over 100 journal articles and has coauthored two books: Principles of highway engineering and traffic analysis (now in its fifth edition) and Statistical and econometric methods for transportation data analysis (now in its second edition). He is also Editor-in-Chief of the Elsevier Science journal Analytic Methods in Accident Research and previous Editor-in-Chief (2003-2012) and current Associate Editor for Transportation Research Part B - Methodological, also an Elsevier Science journal.
