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 understanding structure and reactivity relationships in heterogeneous catalysis, as well as the physical and chemical behavior of gases and liquids confined in nanoporous solids. Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is a key tool that is utilized to study different systems, including modern solid-state and diffusion NMR methodologies. Click here for details about Dr. White’s research.
