Brief Biography: 

Dr. Donald W. White is a Professor at the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE). He has been a member of the CEE faculty at Georgia Tech since 1997. Prior to joining Georgia Tech, Dr. White served on the faculty at the Purdue University School of Civil Engineering from 1987 to 1996. He received his doctorate in Structural Engineering from Cornell University in 1988, and is an alum of North Carolina State University. Prior to graduate study, Dr. White worked as a structural engineer with J.E. Sirrine Company and with Carolina Power and Light Company in Raleigh, North Carolina. Dr. Whites research covers a broad area of design and behavior of steel and composite steel-concrete structures as well as computational mechanics, methods of nonlinear analysis and applications to design. Dr. White is a member of the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Technical Committees 3, Methods of Analysis, 4, Structural Members, and 10, Stability, and the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) Bridge Research Task Force. He is past Chair of the Structural Stability Research Council (SSRC) Task Group 29, Second-Order Inelastic Analysis of Frames. Recently, he has served as a major contributor to the 2004 update of the American Association of State and Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Load and Resistance Factor Design Specification provisions for curved and straight steel bridge design and to the 2005 update of the AISC Specification for Structural Steel Buildings. Dr. White received the 2005 Special Achievement Award from AISC for his research on design criteria for steel and composite steel-concrete members in bridge and building construction. He received the 2006 Shortridge Hardestey Award from ASCE for his research on advanced frame stability concepts and practical design formulations. He is an Associate Editor of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Journal of Structural Engineering and serves on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Constructional Steel Research.
