Even if they’ve never served time in prison, people who have felony convictions still have difficulty accessing stable housing, according to new research from a Rice University sociologist.
Rice chemical engineers have improved their light-powered catalyst for destroying forever chemical PFOA.
Rice chemists have discovered pyramid-shaped gold nanoparticles put their own twist on 2D self-assembly.
Rice, NASA and Caltech scientists have solved a mystery that began with a 2016 discovery by Mars rover Curiosity.
Rice University engineers find they can manipulate the legs of dead spiders to serve as grippers.
For school-age students and their parents, school choice programs can be complicated and stressful. Research from Rice University economist YingHua He suggests the process gets easier when schools are upfront about admission prospects and other details that factor into decisions, and that students should be allowed to apply before having to rank schools in order of preference.
