Dr. Christopher Henry is an associate professor in the Department of Applied Computer Science at The University of Winnipeg. He obtained his PhD from the University of Manitoba while studying in the Computational Intelligence Laboratory in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

The focus of Henry’s work is establishing theoretical frameworks for modeling human perception in applications that reproduce the human ability to make feature-based comparisons. His research is a formal and systematic process for considering and comparing neighbourhoods of points in the context of descriptively near sets, rough sets, and descriptive proximity spaces for solving practical image analysis problems.

He has also worked in areas of machine learning, and recently started investigating the union of descriptive topological and proximity spaces to deep learning neural networks. Since 2010, Henry has been using Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) to accelerate his research applications, and he was instrumental in acquiring the NVIDIA GPU Education Center designation for UWinnipeg in January 2014.

He has published 16 papers in refereed journals, 10 papers in refereed conferences, and two referred book chapters. Henry is a registered Professional Engineer in Manitoba.
