Kaden Hazzard wins NSF CAREER Award

Hazzard and his group will use the award to investigate new ways to simulate the states of matter at extreme cold temperatures, as close as possible to absolute zero. That could allow his experimental colleagues to bring into existence states of matter that are unavailable to them now.

Rice has highly respected schools of Architecture, Business, Continuing Studies, Engineering, Humanities, Music, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences and is home to the Baker Institute for Public Policy. With 3,962 undergraduates and 3,027 graduate students, Rice’s undergraduate student-to-faculty ratio is just under 6-to-1. Its residential college system builds close-knit communities and lifelong friendships, just one reason why Rice is ranked No. 1 for lots of race/class interaction and No. 2 for quality of life by the Princeton Review. Rice is also rated as a best value among private universities by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. To read “What they’re saying about Rice,” go to” alt=”last_img” /> read more
