Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Evans returned to his alma mater in 2001 after teaching experiences at Davidson College, Grinnell College, and Ohio Northern University. His primary teaching responsibilities include general and organic chemistry. He also teaches a forensic chemistry course designed for non-science majors. He is active in coordinating STEM workshops for K-12 teachers and high school students and in coordinating undergraduate STEM research. Dr. Evans’ current research is on developing a novel synthesis for anti-Markovnikov hydrobromination of alkenes.
