We sat down to speak with Shampa Banerjee for our Women in Science and Technology TV series. We were curious to find out how and why a trained physicist like her left a career in ivory tower and cross over to the business side of startups and technology? Banerjee has a Phd in physics and was pursuing a post-doctorate when a chance conversation led to a change in her career path and brought her to Silicon Valley.
