Professor Steve Evans is Visiting Professor to the Materials Science Research Centre.

Alongside his Visiting Professorship at the RCA, Professor Steve Evans is Director of Research in Industrial Sustainability at the Institute for Manufacturing at the University of Cambridge. He leads a research team trying to improve the environmental impact of the world’s industrial system. Steve started working in his first factory in 1976, before becoming Engineering Systems Manager at Martin-Baker Engineering, where he helped design and make the world’s best ejection seats. Helping save two lives per week and working on a product that has two seconds to succeed, often travelling at up to 1000kph, was too much fun and forced a change of career into teaching and research.

Steve holds a BSc and PhD from the University of Bath.  His academic leadership has recently been recognized by an invitation to become a Member of Academia Europaea.
