Professor Evans is a retired professor of chemistry who maintains a small laboratory at Purdue to continue his research in electrochemistry. He does not accept graduate students but is involved in collaborative research with several groups in the Department of Chemistry at Purdue as well as a substantial research collaboration with Professors Richard S. Glass and Dennis L. Lichtenberger at the University of Arizona on the subject of electrocatalytic hydrogen production. He also enjoys consulting with students and faculty with questions/problems in electrochemistry.
