Claire White


E326 Engineering Quad





Principal Investigator. Associate Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering and the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment.

Research Interests

Dr. White’s 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 sustainable cements. Other areas of research include conventional cements, new materials for carbon dioxide capture and utilization, industrial waste recycling, and fundamentals of silicates dissolution. This research spans multiple length and time scales, utilizing advanced synchrotron and neutron-based experimental techniques, and simulation methodologies founded at the nanoscale. A component of Dr. White’s research involves technique development (experiment and simulation) and advanced data analysis methods, including synchrotron-based micro-pair distribution function analysis and coarse-grained simulation methods.
