Dr. White's research is concerned with cognitive aspects of olfaction, or the way that people think about smells and flavors. She currently teaches Research Methods, Sensation and Perception, and Brain and Behavior. Dr. White lives in Syracuse, New York, where winters sometimes bring more than 180 inches of snow. When the lakes are frozen, Dr. White fills her time with travel and by singing in a gospel choir. Once the water will allow it, she enjoys racing her Hobie 16 sailboat.
