In his most recent role at Intel, Evans led the research labs in Intel's Corporate Technology Group focused on virtualization, trust, and content protection and hosted Intel's research on Proactive Health aimed at the development of platforms for home health monitoring.

Over the years, Evans provided leadership for a number of industry standards initiatives. He chaired the Board of Directors of Oasis, an international consortium driving XML interoperability, and played a central role in the creation of RosettaNet, a multi-company initiative focused on building Internet-based supply chains. Evans was educated at the department of Computer Science at Manchester University and INSEAD, France.
