Professor Nick Evans completed his PhD in collider phenomenology in 1993 at Southampton University. He performed his early research work at Yale and Boston Universities in the US before returning to Southampton in 1999 on a UK government 5 year fellowship.
- Strongly Coupled Gauge Theories including QCD and composite Higgs models
- Holographic Descriptions of Gauge Theories
- The origin of mass
- QCD at high temperature and density
His work centres on strongly interacting particle systems, including composite Higgs models, and he plays a large role in applying string theory to study the strong nuclear force and the mechanism of mass generation. Much of his work centres on the structure of the vacuum so in a sense he works on nothing.
Nick has previously taught the third year course Theories of Matter, Space and Time, the fourth year Particle Physics course, the final year Synoptic course and the first year course Electicity and Magnetism plus a Graduate Coure on Quantum Field Theory. He is currently teaching the first year course Energy and Matter on thermodynamics and the kinetic model of gases. Nick's outreach work includes the on line physics with murder, mystery, thriller ``The Newtonian Legacy" which you can read for free online at: \newlinehttp://www.southampton.ac.uk/~evans/NL/
