Sanjay Banerjee is the Cockrell Family Regents Chair Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Director, Microelectronics Research Center, at the University of Texas at Austin. He is also the Director of the South West Academy of Nanoelectronics, one of three centers in the US to develop a replacement for MOSFETs. He received his B.Tech from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, and his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1979, 1981 and 1983 respectively, all in electrical engineering. As a Member of the Technical Staff, Corporate Research, Development and Engineering of Texas Instruments Incorporated from 1983-1987, he worked on polysilicon transistors and dynamic random access trench memory cells used by Texas Instruments in the world's first 4Megabit DRAM, for which he was co-recipient of the Best Paper Award, IEEE International Solid State Circuits Conference, 1986. He has been Assistant Professor (1987-90), Associate Professor (1990-93), and Professor (1993-) at The University of Texas at Austin. He has over 900 archival refereed publications/talks, 8 books/chapters, and 30 U.S. patents, and has supervised over 50 Ph.D. and 60 MS students. He received the Engineering Foundation Advisory Council Halliburton Award, 1991, the Texas Atomic Energy Fellowship (1990-1997), Cullen Professorship (1997-2001) and the Hocott Research Award from UT Austin (2007). He has won the IEEE Grove Award (2014), Distinguished Alumnus Award, IIT (2005), Industrial R&D 100 Award (2004), ECS Callinan Award, 2003, IEEE Millennium Medal, 2000, NSF Presidential Young Investigator Award in 1988, and several SRC Inventor Recognition and Best Paper Awards. He was a Distinguished Lecturer for IEEE Electron Devices Society, and the General Chair of the IEEE Device Research Conference, 2002. He is a Fellow of IEEE, APS and AAAS. He is active in the areas of beyond-CMOS nanoelectronic transistors based on 2D materials and spintronics, fabrication and modeling of advanced MOSFETs, and solar cells.
