He is a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award in 2017 and serves on the editorial boards of Operations Research and INFORMS Journal on Computing. His work focuses on the quantification and mitigation of statistical errors and risks in integrating these methodologies with data, and the design and analysis of efficient computation and solution machineries. Henry is also broadly interested in the intersecting domains of computational probability, stochastic and robust optimization, and machine learning.
