Fulton Schools of Engineering at ASU’s Polytechnic campus.  He holds a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Purdue University.  His areas of interest include human-centered design (especially for the developing world), global teaming, geometric modeling and design thinking. He is a co-founder of InnovationSpace, a transdisciplinary curriculum that teaches students how to develop products that create market value while serving real societal needs and minimizing impacts on the environment.

Henderson is also a co-founder of GlobalResolve, a social entrepreneurship program designed to provide student opportunities by involving them in world-wide technological entrepreneurship projects that directly improve the lives of underprivileged people, especially those in developing countries. The program works with global partners to develop sustainable technologies and community ventures in the areas of energy, clean water and health.  GlobalResolve currently works in thirteen countries, including Mexico, Nepal, Tonga, Kenya and South Sudan.  He has received the President’s Innovation Award in 2009, the Alumni Association Creasman Award in 2008, and the Humanitarian Award from Tempe Sister Cities in 2014.
