This is a presentation that was part of the April, 2007 Rice University NSF Advance Career Success Workshop for Faculty Women in Engineering and Natural Science. This presentation focused on reporting the status of women faculty at Rice University.

Workshop Authors: Kathy Collins and Mikki Hebl, Rice University.

Slide 1: the status of women at rice

  • History of STEM Women at Rice
  • Current Snapshot of STEM Women
  • STEM Comparisons with Other Schools
  • The 2001 Climate Survey: A Summary
  • Important Questions to Consider
  • Ongoing Research and Initiatives
  • Conclusions

Slide 2: history of women at rice

  • Alice Crowell Dean was a teaching fellow in Math (and acting librarian) after graduating from the first class of Rice in 1916.
  • It was not until 1950, that the first woman --Katherine Fischer Drew-- joined the faculty full time (History) and in 1962 was the first to achieve tenure. She graduated from Rice in 1944.

The lombard laws

"Places the Lombard laws in their historical context, showing the importance of barbarian codes, the development of the Lombard policy and society in the early Middle Ages, and the use of laws as sources for these topics. . . . The translation is excellent." --- Katherine Fischer Drew, Translator (1973)

Slide 3: history of women faculty in sciences and engineering at rice university

Women did not join the faculty full time in Science and Engineering until 1965.

  • 1965: Krystyna Ansevin, assistant professor in Biology
  • 1971: Mary Wheeler (Rice Phd), instructor in CAAM
  • 1972: Panayota Kazakos, assistant professor in Electrical Engineering
  • 1972: Kathleen Matthews, assistant professor in Biochemistry
  • 1974: Meera Blattner, assistant professor in CAAM
  • 1977: Yildiz Bayatizoglu, assistant professor in MEMS
  • 1978: Pat Reiff, assistant professor in Space Science
  • 1978: Susan Berget, assistant professor in Biochemistry

what are the products of Nano chemistry?
Maira Reply
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
learn
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level

I only see partial conversation and what's the question here!
Crow Reply
what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think

what is the stm
Brian Reply
is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
Damian
How we are making nano material?
