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

Questions & Answers

how to know photocatalytic properties of tio2 nanoparticles...what to do now
Akash Reply
it is a goid question and i want to know the answer as well
Maciej
Do somebody tell me a best nano engineering book for beginners?
s. Reply
what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
Tarell
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
Virgil
is Bucky paper clear?
CYNTHIA
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Harper
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
s.
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
SUYASH Reply
for screen printed electrodes ?
SUYASH
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
Ebrahim
or in general

AMJAD
preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
AMJAD
what is system testing
AMJAD
what is the application of nanotechnology?
Stotaw
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
Azam
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
Hello
Uday
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
how did you get the value of 2000N.What calculations are needed to arrive at it
