RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research lies at the intersection of software engineering, big data, natural language processing and human-machine interaction. Specifically, I am interested in understanding how humans interact in large scale software repositories, how we can use visual proxies to represent problem repositories, augmenting behavioral biometrics for identification and recognition, and designing multi-sensor multi-modal systems to facilitate interdisciplinary work in understanding human behavior and interactions. I co-direct the Terascale All-sensing Research Studio (TARS) at Clarkson University with Dr. Natasha Banerjee.

BIOGRAPHY

Sean K. Banerjee is an Assistant Professor at Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York. Prior to coming to Clarkson, Sean was a post-doctoral researcher at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he worked on building the first hardware synchronized multi-Kinect capture system. He received his Ph.D, M.S. and B.S. from West Virginia University in 2014, 2006 and 2004 respectively. He also holds a Graduate Certificate in Computer Forensics. His research lies at the intersection of software engineering, big data, natural language processing and human-machine interaction. He was co-author on the HASE 2011 Best Paper titled "Effects of user habituation in keystroke dynamics on password security policy".

OUTSIDE THE OFFICE

My wife, Prof. Natasha Kholgade Banerjee, and I are usually found building something when we are away from work. Currently, we are making our own furniture for our house. It started with a trip to a furniture store, where we discovered that what we wanted either didn't exist or was overpriced. Pictures can be found on Natasha's site.

From 2005 to 2011, I actively competed in regional and national level autocrosses, time trials, and karting. I enjoyed success at the regional level, winning the GS championship in the Southern WV region in 2006 and the STS2 championship in Steel Cities region in 2008. In 2008, I also set the track record in STS2 at the Wilson Circuit Time Trial. In 2011, I completed all requirements to obtain an SCCA Novice Racing License. I was also crew chief, data analyst and crew member for several sprint and endurance racing teams which won several championships. Work and health has since stopped my motorsports adventures.
