Noriko Yui is a professor of mathematics at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario.


A native of Japan, Yui obtained her B.S. from Tsuda College, and her Ph.D. in Mathematics from Rutgers University in 1974 under the supervision of Richard Bumby.[1]

Known internationally, Yui has been a visiting researcher at the Max-Planck-Institute in Bonn a number of times and a Bye-Fellow at Newnham College, University of Cambridge. Her research is based in arithmetic geometry with applications to mathematical physics and notably mirror symmetry.[2] Currently, much of her work is focused upon the modularity of Calabi-Yau threefolds. Notably, she and Fernando Q. Gouvêa have shown that for a projective rigid Calabi-Yau threefold defined over , the -function of is the -function of a certain modular form.[3]

Professor Yui has been the managing editor for the journal Communications in Number Theory and Physics since its inception in 2007. She has edited a number of monographs,[4][5] and she has co-authored two books.[6][7]
