Dr. Satoshi Ozaki received his Ph.D. in physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1959. He then spent 22 years at Brookhaven National Laboratory pursuing interests in high energy physics. His accomplishments at BNL include particle physics experiments at the Cosmotron and AGS, design and exploitation of beamline and detector facilities, management of the Multiparticle Spectrometer Project (MPS) and the On Line Data Facility (OLDF). In 1981 he left his position as Group Leader of the Spectrometer Group in the Physics Department, BNL for Tsukuba, Japan to lead the construction of TRISTAN, a 30 GeV Electron-Positron Collider at the National Laboratory for High Energy Physics (KEK). He served as the Director of the Physics Department and then as the Director of the TRISTAN Project. Upon completion of the Project on schedule in 1987, he became the Director of the Accelerator Department at KEK. Dr. Ozaki returned to BNL in 1989 as the RHIC Project Director. In this capacity, he heads the nine-year construction project to build the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), a major superconducting collider, and complement of detectors for high energy heavy ion collision physics. From 1981 - 1989 he served as a member of the Advisory Council for Science Policy and Management of KEK (being Chairman form 5/87). He has also served on numerous panels and advisory boards such as the SLAC Science Policy Committee, the URA Visiting Committee for Fermilab, the LHC Machine Advisory Committee and presently the CERN Science Policy Committee.
