Research Emphasis: Developmental/Reproductive Toxicology and Pathology
Dr. Evans’ doctoral research involved various aspects of the bioavailability and toxicokinetics of environmental contaminants, such as lead and cadmium, in porcine and cellular models. Dr. Evans’ clinical research projects investigate the effects of mycotoxins on animal reproduction and the pathogenesis of reproductive disease in domestic animals. Dr. Evans’ current comparative research focus is the development of porcine models to study the adverse effects of toxicants on the male reproductive tract.

Teaching: Toxicology

Dr. Evans teaches clinical and diagnostic toxicology and presents lectures on poisonous plants within the veterinary professional curriculum.
