White employs engineering approaches to better understand how information is processed in the brain. Combining computational modeling, electrophysiological and optical techniques, and imaging methods, he and his team have worked to advance new biomedical devices to understand memory disorders and epilepsy. A fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering, White has published over 80 peer-reviewed papers and as a principal or co-principal investigator has raised over $50 million in grant funding from the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, private foundations, and other sources.

Research Interests:

mechanisms of episodic memory, pathophysiology of epilepsy, computational neuroscience, design of real-time instrumentation, imaging of activity in neurons and astrocytes
