She will contribute to internationalization in Central New York by teaching and collaborating with faculty, conducting research, and engaging with student and community groups.
An activist-scholar, Banerjee researches and writes about ethnic and religious conflict, reports on dislocation and vulnerabilities and organizes conferences to solicit solutions for ending conflict.
