Greene appointed journal editor

OAK RIDGE, Tenn., March 20, 1998 — Dr. David L. Greene of the Department of Energy's (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has been appointed by the director of the U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) to serve as editor-in-chief of the Journal of Transportation and Statistics (JTS).

Greene serves as editor-in-chief of the only scholarly research journal sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation. Published biannually, the journal serves a broad spectrum of members of the transportation community who provide, use or make decisions based on transportation information.

The peer-reviewed journal aims to increase the understanding of the role of transportation in society, its function in the economy and its interactions with the environment. In addition, the JTS will provide a forum for the latest developments in transportation.

After joining ORNL in 1977, Greene founded the Transportation Energy Group in 1980 and later established the Transportation Research Section in 1987. Greene was a senior research analyst for DOE in the Office of Domestic and International Energy Policy for two years before returning to ORNL as a senior research staff member of the Center for Transportation Analysis in the Energy Division.

Greene received a bachelor's degree from Columbia University and a master's degree from the University of Oregon. He holds a doctorate in geography and environmental engineering from Johns Hopkins University.

He has written more than 150 articles, professional journal articles, contributions to books and technical reports. Greene has given congressional testimony on transportation and energy issues and has served on numerous committees of the National Research Council. His new book, "Transportation and Energy," has just been published by the Eno Foundation for Transportation.

Greene and his wife, Janet, live in Farragut. They have two children, Jennifer and Michael.

ORNL, one of DOE's multiprogram national research and development facilities, is managed by Lockheed Martin Energy Research Corporation.
