P. Andrew Evans is a Professor and Alfred R. Bader Chair of Organic Chemistry in Department of Chemistry at Queen’s University. He received a Ph.D. from University of Cambridge (Andrew B. Holmes, FRS) in 1990 with a following NATO Postdoctoral research at University of Texas at Austin (Philip D. Magnus, FRS). Since 1993, he joined University of Delaware and was promoted to a Professor in 2000. Then, he worked at Indiana University (2001-2006) and The University of Liverpool (2006-2012). From 2012 until now, he is a Professor at Queen’s University and a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Organic and Organometallic Chemistry. .
He has won numerous awards and has been extremely active in the community, including 2017 Arthur C. Cope Scholar.
His research interests are primarily focused on the exploration and development of new metal-catalyed reactions and their application to the total synthesis of complex bioactive natural products.
