Ralph E. White

Professor and Distinguished Scientist


Dr. White and members of his research group are working on projects in the areas of fuel cells, batteries, electro-deposition, corrosion, and numerical methods. Their work on numerical methods consists of developing efficient algorithms to solve the equations that represent the phenomena that occur in electrochemical and chemical systems.
