Gannon A. White, PhD, completed his graduate studies in exercise science with an emphasis in biomechanics at the University of Northern Colorado (UNC). While at UNC, White minored in applied statistics.

He went on to teach exercise science and statistics at the University of Arkansas in Little Rock for nine years. He was also the graduate coordinator of the Exercise Science Program at the University of Arkansas.

His research interests include EMG, economy of motion and anything that is uniquely quantifiable. White creates an interactive hands-on learning environment for his students. He believes that providing analytical methods and tools for assessing human/animal mechanics will best help the student as they move into a career. When he is not busy teaching, White enjoys distance running, whitewater kayaking, rock climbing, chess, one wheeling and slack lining.
