Chuck Henry is a professor in the Department of Chemistry. His research focuses on miniaturization in analytical chemistry, with specific emphasis on the use of microfluidic techniques for chemical characterization of atmospheric aerosols and other environmental samples; the development of biosensors for understanding spatial and temporal changes in chemical gradients that form in biological tissues; and the development of ultra-cheap clinical and environmental diagnostic tools made from ordinary filter paper in an area called paper-based microfluidics. His group is involved in the CSU GK-12 program, which aims to translate ongoing research into teaching opportunities for local high schools.
Henry was a Fulbright Scholar at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok in 2009. He recently received the Colorado Cleantech Research Award for Water Technology Commercialization.
Henry received his B.S. in chemistry from Missouri Southern State College in 1994. He earned his Ph.D. in analytical chemistry from the University of Arkansas in 1998.
