Welcome! I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Physics at Ohio State University located in Columbus, Ohio. I was born and brought up in Kolkata, India. After finishing high school in Kolkata, I went to college at North Carolina State University located in Raleigh, North Carolina. I majored in Physics and Chemistry and minored in Math and Music.

In college, I worked in an Analytical Chemistry and Neuroscience lab for three and a half years, a Nonlinear Dynamics lab for a summer and in a Nuclear Astrophysics group for over a year. Working in real research labs, I learned more than I ever could in a classroom and gained a lot of confidence as a scientist.

Now, I work on an ultra-high-energy neutrino experiment called ANITA. I was recently (2016) in Antarctica for a few months to launch and support the ANITA-4 mission! It was hard work leading to a successful launch and mission, and an experience of a lifetime 🙂

Feel free to navigate through the tabs to learn more about my research, teaching, classes, outreach and service projects. E-mail me at banerjee.104 at osu.edu with any questions!
