Laura White is an Aerospace Engineer at NASA Langley Research Center. She received a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Arkansas State University in 2013. In 2018, she received her doctorate in mathematics from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Upon completion of her doctoral program, she entered the government workforce at NASA Langley Research Center where she applies knowledge from both her undergraduate and graduate studies. She currently works on statistical applications of quantifying uncertainties that exist within the governing mathematical equations of fluid flow around aerospace vehicles. She spends her days trying to answer the question: “Given the assumptions we make to describe this aerodynamic flow; how do we quantify the discrepancy between reality and the mathematical model?”. Other areas of interest are in-space robotic assembly and surrogate modeling for database management. She is also passionate about women’s equality in the workforce and currently serves as the lead of the women’s employee resource group at Langley. In her free time, you can find her getting lost in an epic fantasy book, hiking strenuous trails, rock climbing, running, or quad skating at the local skate park.
