Yuri Suzuki received her Ph.D. in applied physics, specializing in high-temperature superconductors, at Stanford, where she began studying the properties of new materials. She carried out her doctoral research in the area of high-temperature superconductivity with a National Science Foundation Predoctoral Fellowship and an ARCS Foundation Fellowship. In the fall of 1994, she joined AT&T Bell Laboratories (now Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies) as a Postdoctoral Member of Technical Staff. She joined the Cornell University faculty in January 1997. She is a member of the American Physical Society, the Materials Research Society, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Recently she received an ONR Young Investigator Award, an NSF CAREER award, the Robert Lansing Hardy Award from the Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS), and a David and Lucile Packard Foundation Fellowship.

She joined the Berkeley faculty in spring 2003 after five years on the faculty at Cornell University. Her goal at Berkeley is to interact with its outstanding cohort of faculty and students and explore new research directions in photonics and optics.
