Biography

Mark Henderson is an associate dean with Barrett Honors College, and President's Professor of engineering at Arizona State University at the Polytechnic School in the Ira A Fulton Schools of Engineering. He is also the director of GlobalResolve.

Professor Henderson was named a Presidential Young Investigator (1985-90) and is co-author of the textbook, "Computer-Integrated Design and Manufacturing." His major research includes 60 papers in computer-aided design and global engineering and he serves on the editorial board of The Journal of Computer-Aided Design (CAD).

As part of a multi-university collaboration on student mobility, he began the Nomadic Academy in 2004, a summer study abroad program in design and manufacturing with Penn State, University of Washington, University of Leeds (UK), IUT Bethune (France), Ecole Centrale Lyon (France) and University of Navarra (Spain). He founded the ASU Global Engineering Design Team, a multi-disciplinary, multi-country design experience for undergraduates and also is co-founder of GlobalResolve (http://globalresolve.asu.edu), a social entrepreneurship program with projects in Africa to help villages solve problems in water and energy and use those solutions to establish sustainable business ventures.

Professor Henderson is on the founding faculty of an engineering program at ASU's Polytechnic campus. He is also co-founder of the InnovationSpace, a new approach to transdisciplinary product development and entrepreneurship. His interests extend across typical disciplinary boundaries and include global design teams, innovative product design, computer graphics, CAD and rapid prototyping.
