Professor John S.O. Evans – Chair in Inorganic/Solid State Chemistry

Welcome to my webpages.

September 2021: the University has moved staff webpages to wordpress. Please accept my apologies for any broken links and information that has been lost.

I am a Professor of Inorganic Chemistry in the Chemistry Department at the University of Durham. I was Head of Department from 2009-2014.

My principal research activities are in solid state chemistry.

This site contains a little bit of information about my research, but is mainly set up to link to our on-line Topas tutorials (several hundred in total) and for the Durham Rietveld school.

Please follow the various links to read about:
