Dr. White is an emergency physician and physician scientist. He is the Associate Chair for Research for the Department of Emergency Medicine and holds adjunct appointments in the Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Bioengineering. He cares for patients in the Emergency Department at Harborview Medical Center and strives to improve the care of critically ill and injured patients through technology innovation.

Dr. White studies hemostatic emergencies, with a focus on understanding the role of fibrinogen in inflammation and the coagulopathy of trauma. He also studies how novel engineered technologies can be used to stop bleeding after injury. He is funded by the National Institutes of Health to develop novel injectable polymeric hemostatic agents in collaboration with the Department of Bioengineering, and is developing novel resuscitation cocktails for resuscitation of hemorrhagic shock in austere environments, along with novel immunomodulatory agents with funding from the U.S. Department of Defense. He also regularly serves as a faculty leader for undergraduate Bioengineering capstone teams and as a graduate student advisor.
