Assistant Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering and the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment
Claire White is an Assistant Professor at Princeton University in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering and the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment. Dr. White completed her graduate studies in 2010 at the University of Melbourne supported by an Australian Postgraduate Award from the Australian government. After receiving her PhD, she worked as a postdoc at Los Alamos National Laboratory, and was awarded a Director’s Postdoctoral Fellowship to research the atomic structure of low-CO2 alkali-activated materials. Her research focuses on understanding and optimizing engineering and environmental materials, with an emphasis on controlling the chemical mechanisms responsible for formation and long-term degradation of low-CO2 cements. This research spans multiple length and time scales, utilizing advanced synchrotron and neutron-based experimental techniques, and simulation methodologies. Dr. White is the recipient of a number of awards including a National Science Foundation CAREER Award and the Howard B. Wentz Jr. Junior Faculty Award.
