Dr. White is a distinguished research fellow in the theory department, and a faculty lecturer with rank of Professor. He graduated in Physics from the University of Minnesota and then obtained his Ph.D. in Physics from Princeton in 1963.
After obtaining his degree he spent a year at the Lebedev Institute in Moscow as an Academy of Science exchange scientist. He then spent two years at The International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, returning to the US to teach for six years at UCLA. In 1972 he returned to Princeton, first for two years at the Institute for Advanced Study and then to PPPL. Primary interests include ideal and resistive magnetohydrodynamics, wave-particle interactions, and nonlinear dynamics.
