Dr. White's research interests are in three interrelated domains 1) prevention and treatment of anxiety pathology, 2) investigation into the relationship between anxiety pathology and physical health (especially pain conditions), and 3) investigation of new methods of assessing and treating anxiety and panic in medical settings. Current research is focused on: 1) the role of anxiety and emotional vulnerability in the clinical course of non-cardiac chest pain, 2) the role of physical health status on treatment-outcome in Panic Disorder, and 3) developmental and familial markers of risk for comorbid emotional and physical ailments.
