Prof. Swapna Banerjee completed her B.E. degree (1971) and M.E. (1974) from the Department of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering in Jadavpur University. She was awarded Ph.D. degree in 1981 from the Department of Electronics and ECE at Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India. She was awarded Post Doctoral fellowship from Tokyo University, Japan. In 1981, she joined as the lecturer in the Department of Electronics and ECE, at Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, where from she retired as Head of the department in December 2014. She worked as Visiting Professor in the same Departmentuntil 2016.
She has developed a non-invasive blood-glucose measuring and continuous monitoringsystem using photoacoustic spectroscopy. A CW Doppler Ultrasonography system has also been developed using a VLSI based advanced FFT spectrum analyzer for noninvasive measurement of the blood flow pattern. The system calculates a complete set of clinical parameters and having an inference engine capable of diagnosing the diseases.Her research efforts comprised designing VLSI chips for embedded low-cost, low-power biomedical systems having the facility of intelligent adaptive control for automated therapeutic purpose.Dr. Banerjee has received the prestigious Matsumae International Foundation Award from Japan in 1985. She with her research scholars secured second place at the finals of the Healthcare Innovation World Cup held in New York on May 10, 2013. She also received the IEEE best woman in engineering award in 2015. She is the recipient of DST - Lokheed Martin India Innovation Growth Programme Award, New Delhi, India, 2015 and also 2016.
She has published more than one hundred and fifty number of research papers in reputed International and National journals and conferences. She holds twelve National and International patents. Prof. Banerjee, along with guiding a number of doctoral students, also supervised a number of projects funded by National and International agencies. She is the Fellow of Institute of Engineers, India and senior member of IEEE.
Last but not the least; she is the trustee member of Sarada Kalyan Bhandar, a women charitable organization (http://www.skbcharity.org). Its main charter is to uplift backward rural mass through education and health.
