Greg Evans is a Professor in the University of Toronto Department of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry. He is the founding Director of the Southern Ontario Centre for Atmospheric Aerosol Research (SOCAAR), a multidisciplinary centre that is investigating the impacts of air pollution on the environment, the climate, and human health.

Prof. Evans’ research has advanced understanding of how changes in the concentration, composition, and origins of air pollution is impacting the exposure and health of Canadians. He has developed and applied new instruments, methods, and strategies for mining data in order to unravel the many sources of air pollution, how exposure can vary across cities, and most importantly, how this can be reduced. His research has helped to raise awareness, improve air quality, and benefit the health of Canadians.

Prof. Evans’ contributions as a researcher and educator have been widely recognised. He is a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the Canadian Engineering Education Association, and is a 3M National Teaching Fellow. This year, SOCAAR was awarded NSERC’s Brockhouse Prize for Interdisciplinary Research in Science and Engineering.
