BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Cornell University professor of physics; Christopher Henley started as a assistant professor of physics in 1989 and became a full professor in 2001. His research was in the theory of frustrated magnetism, both classical and quantum, interacting electron systems, quasicrystals, and biological physics. In biological physics, Henley led projects in pattern formation and mechanics, specifically a large project about the physical bases of left/right symmetry breaking in various animals including snails, in plants, or in assemblies of single cells.
