Profile Summary

Monish R. Chatterjee received his BTech (honors) degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India, in 1979, and the MS and PhD degrees from the University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa, in 1981 and 1985, respectively. He is currently a professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Dayton, Dayton, Ohio. He was a faculty member in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Binghamton University, State University of New York, from 1986 to 2002. He specializes in applied optics, specifically in the areas of holography, wave propagation, acousto-optic interactions, and, most recently, chaotic signal encryption and decryption. Dr. Chatterjee has contributed over 125 papers to technical conferences and published more than 50 papers in archival journals and peer-reviewed conference proceedings, and numerous reference articles on science. In 2009, he co-edited a Feature Issue of Applied Optics. Dr. Chatterjee is also active in the field of humanities, and is the author of three books of translation from his native Bengali, along with a number of chapters contributed to several literary books. He has participated in numerous international conferences in the humanities, ranging from Asian Studies and Literary Criticism, to Rabindranath Tagore and World Peace. Dr. Chatterjee also maintains articles and commentaries on a variety of subjects online in a number of blogs. Dr. Chatterjee received the State University of New York Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2000, and was elected a Humanities Fellow of the University of Dayton, conducting research on scientific language with Professor Patricia Johnson of Philosophy, from 2005-2007. Dr. Chatterjee is a Senior Member of the IEEE and the OSA, a Member of SPIE and Sigma Xi, and a Fellow of the Golden Keys Honors Society.
