Jim Evans is Professor of Metallurgy and holder of the P. Malozemoff Endowed Chair in Mineral Engineering in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, University of California, Berkeley, where he has taught since 1972. He is the author/co-author of three books and 300 papers. His research deals with rate phenomena governing the productivity of processes for producing metals and other materials. This has involved investigations of wide ranging technologies such as aluminum reduction cells, electromagnetic casters, chemical vapor deposition, fluidized bed electrodes and batteries. His current projects include mathematical modeling of the treatment of molten metals, wireless monitoring of the electrolytic cells used for producing aluminum, recovery of water and copper from semiconductor industry waste streams, modeling of new technology for producing titanium and lithium batteries for energy storage in wireless technology. He received the Extractive Metallurgy Science Award of TMS in 1973 and again in 1983. He served as a Director of TMS from 1986 to 1989. In 1994, he was the Extractive and Processing Lecturer of AIME. In 2004 he was the recipient of the James Douglas Gold Medal of AIME as well as the Brimacombe Prize.
