Dr. Tanvi Banerjee is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Wright State University and a secondary appointment at the Department of Geriatrics at the Boonshoft School of Medicine. Her academic focus has been at the crossroads of AI and healthcare; in particular revolving around multimodal data fusion, wearable sensing, and mobile healthcare technologies. She has been a recipient of the prestigious K01 grant awarded by NIH (equivalent to the CAREER pathway in NSF) for the project on Dementia Management using smartphone technologies and a co-investigator in the NIH R01 funded Sickle Cell Disease project. Her work has been featured in the Dayton Daily News, Research Features' Women in Science, Alzheimer's Association as well as Fairborn Daily News.

Her goal is to bridge the gap between clinical knowledge and data-driven understanding from a patient's behavioral and biophysical information through the use of non-invasive sensing technologies. For more details, please take a look at her cv here.

    Dr. Banerjee received her Master's degree and her Ph.D. from University of Missouri in 2014. From 2008 to 2014, as a member of CERT (Center for Eldercare and Rehabilitation Technology), she worked as a research assistant and a graduate instructor for the NSF HCC project. Her PhD thesis focused on the detection of activities of daily living and sedentary behavior patterns in older adults using depth imagery.

Research Statement

  • Current Projects
    • Dementia - This project focuses on the use of smartphone technology along with monitoring physiological symptoms of dementia patients and their caregivers using wearable sensors. 
    • Asthma
    • Gender Based Violence Studies: please see our preliminary work  on analyzing gender based violence content using Big Data. We used Twitter data to study the behavior of people across different countries, times, and genders. Please see the paper for more details.
