Dr. Banerjee (Ph.D. from Ohio State University) is a Professor in the department of materials science and engineering at the University of North Texas (UNT). He also serves as the Director for the Center of Advanced Research and Technology (CART) and the Principal Investigator of the Institute for Science and Engineering Simulation (ISES), funded by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory, at UNT. His primary research focus is on advanced metallic and functionally-graded composite (or hybrid) materials for aerospace, energy, and biomedical applications. The use of advanced characterization techniques, spanning over a range of length scales, including transmission electron microscopy and atom probe tomography, constitute a common thread tying his multiple research activities. These techniques are used to identify the underlying mechanisms and phase transformations governing microstructural evolution and microstructure-property relationships in these complex multi-phase, multi-component materials systems. Currently his research is primarily funded by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory, the U.S. National Science Foundation, and the U.S. Department of Energy. Additionally, his research has been funded by the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC), Lockheed Martin Aerospace, and ATI Allvac. He has published 176 papers in refereed journals (Total citations = 3512, H-index = 32), graduated 7 Ph.D. and 7 masters students, and is active in teaching graduate and undergraduate courses in materials science and engineering at UNT. Dr. Banerjee also holds an adjunct faculty appointment as an adjunct professor in materials science and engineering at the Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, USA.
