Dr. Saptarshi Mukherjee received a B.Tech. degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering from the National Institute of Technology, Durgapur, India, in 2013, and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI, USA, in 2018. He joined Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) as a Postdoctoral Researcher and is currently working as an Applied Electromagnetics Research Scientist. Dr. Mukherjee’s research interests include nondestructive evaluation methods in advanced manufacturing, computational geosciences, imaging and inverse problems, and high-power microwave devices. He has authored 3 patents and over 20 technical papers. He is currently serving as an American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) mentor, committee member of ASNT research and engineering councils, and current chair of the ASNT Golden Gate Section. He has served as the chair of the Electromagnetic Nondestructive Evaluation workshop at LLNL and a session chair for 8 international conferences.
