University Experience


Dr. Henderson is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Florida in the Environmental Engineering Sciences department. His interests are chemistry and physics of air pollution as it relates to human health, ecological health, and climate.

Dr. Henderson currently teaches a graduate class called "Global Air Pollutants" in the spring and an undergraduate course called "Energy & Environment" in the fall. "Global Air Pollutants" focuses on the modeling of chemistry and physics at the global scale with a focus on persistant organic pollutants, mercury, ozone, and aerosols. "Energy & Environment" focuses on understanding energy sources limitations and trade-offs in the context present and future societal uses.

Sponsored Research

Dr. Henderson began pursuing external funding in July 2012 and targets private, municipal, state, federal, and non-governmental agencies.
