Tanvi Banerjee, assistant professor of computer science, received the 2018–19 Presidential Award for Faculty Excellence: Early Career Achievement.

Banerjee’s ability to thrive in the fields of research, teaching and community service is instrumental in her success and the success of Wright State students.

Banerjee has been recognized for her outstanding contributions both in the classroom and with her research efforts at Wright State. For the latter, she has written 21 archived journal articles and 25 refereed conference publications. She has received more than $900,000 in funding for her research in the past four years. Her research on using technology for caregiver stress assessment has been featured in the UK-based magazine Research Features in its special Women in Science edition in 2018.

When it comes to teaching, Banerjee has excellent reviews from students who have taken her classes. She teaches a variety of classes in the College of Engineering and Computer Science and works with students on research projects at the undergraduate, graduate and doctoral levels.

Banerjee also plays a significant role in the Wright State community. She is an active member of multiple department and college committees and is a faculty advisor for the National Center for Women and Information Technology. She also volunteers to speak at many outreach events for the College of Engineering and Computer Science.

Banerjee’s peers praise her for going above and beyond in serving the community.

“Dr. Banerjee’s service activities, both on and off campus, well exceed our expectations for a faculty member so early in her career,” said one of her colleagues.

Banerjee received her B.S. in electronics and telecommunications engineering at Pune University in India and her M.S. and Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering at the University of Missouri.
