Dr. White is currently seeking strong applications for Graduate Research Assistants (GRA’s) in his group. GRA’s will be supported during their graduate studies by research fellowships. Contact Dr. White directly for additional information. 




Dr. White’s research group focuses on the physical chemistry of heterogeneous materials. Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is the key tool that is utilized to study different systems. Both solid-state NMR and diffusion NMR are used to interrogate the physical chemistry of systems, in particular, heterogeneous copolymers & gradient copolymers, heterogeneous catalysis in solid acids, oil shale, geological rock, etc. Click here for details about Dr. White’s research.
