Emanuela Barzi is an R&D physicist and engineer at Fermilab, with over 200 peer-reviewed papers in Physical Review Letters, Physical Review D, Superconductor Science and Technology, IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity and on Nuclear Science, Advances in Cryogenic Engineering, Materials Letters, Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research, as well as one book chapter.

A 2012 fellow of the American Physical Society “for her innovations in the development of advanced superconductors, her continuous efforts in promoting International scientific collaborations, and her unwavering mentoring of US and Italian students", Barzi is an active member of the high-energy accelerator and physics communities. The Superconducting R&D lab that she founded is a world leading center in low and high temperature superconductor technologies for the next generation of particle accelerators. She is presently also a member of the Muon g-2 E989 Collaboration. In addition to conducting research at Fermilab, she has established a number of high-impact International collaborations, as well as extensive educational programs for graduate students in Physics and Engineering that have benefited hundreds of young professionals. She has also been mentoring 30+ students in her lab either for summer internships or for their Specialized Masters or PhD, as well as postdocs, engineers and scientists.

In 2010 she was awarded the “Superconductor Science and Technology Prize” by the Japanese Forum of Superconductivity Science and Technology.

She has been serving as a DOE SBIR, Accelerator Stewardship Program, and Lehman reviewer and is a member of the APS Fellowship and FIP Newsletter Committees.
