Dipyaman Banerjee (MS ’05) has been chosen for senior membership status in the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers. The honor is granted to only those who have made significant contributions for at least 10 years in the fields of computer science and electrical and electronics engineering.
Banerjee is a researcher at IBM Research Lab in New Delhi, India. He received his bachelor’s degree in computer science and technology from the Indian Institute for Engineering, Science and Technology, formerly known as Bengal Engineering College, in West Bengal, India. He chose to continue his education at The University of Tulsa with a master’s in computer science because of the faculty and research opportunities. “It is at TU that I first got the exposure to pursue deep research in areas such as Artificial Intelligence,” Banerjee says. “The program helped me build a solid foundation on how to perform high impact research and publish in top-tier conferences and journals.”
With mentorship from Professor Sandip Sen, Banerjee focused on machine learning in game theoretic settings. He authored papers for top AI journals, presented at conferences and gained valuable experience that helped him obtain a position at IBM — one of the most prestigious computer science research divisions in the world.
Banerjee’s achievement is showcased in the IBM Research-India Wall of Fame. IEEE senior membership reflects professional maturity, extensive experience and documented achievements in one’s field. “This is a significant milestone of external recognition in my career,” he says.
For the past two years, he has represented TU at the EducationUSA Alumni fair in New Delhi where he meets with students who aspire to study in the United States. “I enjoy sharing my experience and encouraging them to apply to TU.”
