Natasha Banerjee Appointed Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Clarkson University

Natasha Kholgade Banerjee has been appointed assistant professor of computer science at Clarkson University.

Natasha Kholgade BanerjeeShe received her bachelor of science and master of science degrees in computer engineering from the Rochester Institute of Technology, and her Ph.D. in robotics from Carnegie Mellon University.

Her research interest lies at the intersection of computer graphics and computer vision. She uses large databases of 3D models to represent and manipulate the geometry, illumination, and appearance of images in 3D.

Her projects include the automatic alignment of 3D models to photographs, 3D object manipulation in a single photograph and content retargeting using parallel facial layers. She has published articles on working in 3D and computer animation, and has a patent pending and a provisional patent relating to her work.

Before coming to this position, Banerjee was a graduate research assistant at the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University and a student researcher in the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon. She also was a research intern for Disney Research and for Pixar Animation Studios.

She has teaching experience as a guest lecturer and teaching assistant, both in computational photography, at Carnegie Mellon. She was also a mentor to undergraduate students.

Banerjee has given talks and made presentations on topics such as big data in computational photography, manipulating images in three dimensions, alignment of 3-d models to images using templates, images-based lighting, manipulation of objects in a single photograph using stock 3d models, and more.

She was a reviewer for the IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition. She also has served as reviewer for the International and European Conferences on Computer Vision.

While pursuing her doctoral degree, she was a finalist for the Google Anita Borg Scholarship.

Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in five alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world's pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and the health professions, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
