David White joined Denison’s Department of Mathematics and Computer Science in 2014. He received his doctorate and master’s degree from Wesleyan University, and his bachelor’s degree from Bowdoin College. He teaches courses in mathematics, computer science, and statistics, and has supervised student research in all three areas. He has published fifteen papers on topics in mathematics, applied statistics, computer science, economics, and data science. White’s work in mathematics applies the techniques of abstract homotopy theory to other fields of mathematics and mathematical physics. White’s recent research includes statistical approaches to the opioid epidemic in Ohio, and to the analysis of mass gun violence data.
