Dr. Morosan is an associate professor in the Departments of Physics and Astronomy, Chemistry, and Materials Science and Nanoengineering at Rice University. Her lab has made important contributions in the field of experimental condensed matter, on topics such as local and itinerant moment magnetism, superconductivity, heavy fermions and quantum criticality, predominantly using growth and characterization of single crystalline compounds. Her group is focused on the design and synthesis of new compounds with unconventional electronic and magnetic ground states, using conventional methods of solid state synthesis, vapor transport, and flux crystal growth. Dr. Morosan has received a Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award, a National Science Foundation CAREER Award and a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, and became a National Academy of Sciences Kavli Frontiers Fellow. Dr. Morosan earned her PhD from Iowa State University and also trained at Princeton University.
