Dr. Katherine White is currently an Assistant Professor of Psychology and Director of the Cognition and Aging Lab. Dr. White′s research investigates memory and language processes in young and older adults, with specific emphasis on the interactions between memory retrieval, language production, and language comprehension. Prior to coming to Rhodes, Dr. White taught at Centre College and the College of Charleston, and was an Associate Research Scientist at Educational Testing Service.
