Research Interests

My research is in the area of natural language processing, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, with special focus on AI in the biomedical domain for applications in healthcare informatics.


Ritwik Banerjee is a research assistant professor at the Department of Computer Science, Stony Brook University, where he also received his Ph.D. in computer science, advised by Y. Choi and co-advised by I. V. Ramakrishnan. He received the Computer Science Chairman Fellowship in 2009-2010. Prior to his doctorate, he holds a M.Sc. in Computer Science and B.Sc. in Mathematics and Computer Science from the Chennai Mathematical Institute, India.
