Dr. Henry will begin as an assistant professor at Georgia
Tech in the mechanical engineering department in spring 2012, after completing
a fellowship with ARPAE in 2011. Previously, he has worked as a postdoctoral
fellow at Oak Ridge National Lab under the supervision of Dr. David Singh. Dr.
Henry has a background in studying atomic vibration with molecular dynamics
simulations and his primary expertise is in thermal conductivity
calculations. Publications A. Henry and G. Chen, Spectral Phonon
