Research interest:
White manages and conducts research projects and conveys information related to water management, water quality (chemical and biotic parameters), ecologically-based treatment technologies, and integrated pest management to green industry stakeholders. Her lab is currently investigating the applications of vegetation-based technologies (constructed wetlands, floating treatment wetlands, and vegetated buffers) for cleansing agrichemical and pathogen contaminants from production runoff to encouraging water reuse and conservation. White also advises graduate students, supervises undergraduate students, and serves as the Horticulture Club faculty advisor. White is also working with the Southern Nursery Integrated Pest Management (SNIPM) working group to collaboratively develop Extension resources related to nursery crops, pests, and their management. They have released 2 books (links to books in Sustainable Nursery Website and SNIPM website), 2 smart-phone applications (IPMPro, IPMLite), and multiple extension documents.
