Professor Mantin’s research program encapsulates topical, important and challenging aspects of dynamic pricing and revenue management (DP/RM), supply chain management, and transportation economics.

The core of his research focuses on integrating and understanding consumer behaviour in the context of dynamically priced goods through analytical models, behavioural experiments as well as empirical analyses; strategic interactions between agents in supply chains with an emphasis on decisions in competitive environments; and deriving insights for policy decision makers in regulating and privatizing the aviation industry.
