Expertise:
Dr. White has expertise on the use of nanotechnology in agriculture (nano-enabled agriculture); specifically, on the use of nanoscale micronutrients to suppress crop disease and enhance food production. He also has expertise in the accumulation and toxicity of nanomaterials to crop species, as well as the fate and disposition of engineered nanomaterials in the environment.  Dr. White has additional experience in the detection of pesticides, toxins, poisons and heavy metals in food. He also has expertise in the phytoremediation of persistent organic pollutants in soil, as well as more generally on the fate of organic contaminants in soils, sediments, and waters. 

Education:
Ph.D. in Environmental Toxicology, Cornell University 1997
M.S. in Environmental Toxicology, Cornell University 1995
B.S. in Environmental Science, Juniata College 1992

Station career:
Assistant Agricultural Scientist, 1998-2001
Associate Agricultural Scientist, 2001-2007
Agricultural Scientist, 2007-2009
Head, Chief Scientist, Department of Analytical Chemistry, 2009-present
Vice Director, 2013-current

Past research:
The focus was largely on nanotoxicology, which focuses on the fate and effects of engineered nanomaterials on biota, including plant, earthworm and algal species. In addition, past work also focused on enhancing the biological and physical availability of organic pollutants that have become sequestered in soil, as well as the use of plants through phytoremediation to facilitate soil restoration.

Current research:
The current research falls into 2 categories.
First, investigations are addressing the use of nanotechnology in agriculture, including the use of nanoscale nutrients to suppress crop disease and enhance food production. In addition, parallel work is being conducted on the fate and effects of nanomaterials (NM) in agriculture and on food crops. There are active investigations focusing on NM toxicity, accumulation, trophic transfer and food chain contamination. Active research collaborations are underway with colleagues at the Center for Sustainable Nanotechnology (NSF CCI), the Harvard University T.H. Chan School of Public Health, University of Massachusetts-Amherst, the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry, Southern Illinois University Carbondale, the University of Texas-El Paso, Texas A & M University, USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC), Nanyang Technological University (Singapore), the University of Parma (Italy), Hasselt University (Belgium), Ocean University of China, Nanjing Agricultural University (China), Zhejiang University (China), Peking University (China), Nankai University (China), McGill University (Canada) and Institute of Experimental Botany (Czech Republic).


As part of the work on nano-enabled agriculture, I am a Senior Investigator within the Center of Sustainable Nanotechnology (https://susnano.wisc.edu/ ) and a Co-Principal Investigator in the Nanyang Technology University-Harvard University T.H. Chan School of Public Health Initiative for Sustainable Nanotechnology (NTU-Harvard SusNano) (https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nano/2017/08/23/harvard-t-h-chan-school-of-public-health-and-nanyang-technological-university-of-singapore-join-forces-and-establish-a-research-initiative-for-sustainable-nanotechnology/ ).
