Dr. White received her Ph.D. in Exercise and Sport Science in 1995 from the University of Utah and was appointed as a Research Assistant Professor in ESS in 1996. Her doctoral work was supported by a fellowship from the Heuga Center for MS, and her primary research focus has been centered around preserving health and function in individuals with multiple sclerosis. Recently, this work has been extended to other clinical populations.

Research Statement

My current research focus is on identifying physiological markers of fatigue. I am interested in pathologic fatigue as seen in individuals with multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and cancer. In addition, I am interested in factors, including thermal stress, that lead to central and peripheral fatigue during athletic performance.
