Evans Harrell is a Professor of Mathematics and Associate Dean Emeritus at Georgia Tech. He studied at Stanford and Princeton, where he wrote a dissertation with Barry Simon. Before coming to Georgia Tech from Johns Hopkins in the 1980s he had a series of postdocs and teaching positions in the US and Europe, and he has held several visiting positions in France since then. While at Georgia Tech he has received a Sloan Fellowship and an Eichholz Faculty Teaching Award, and he is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Before serving as Associate Dean for Research in the College of Sciences 2005-2014, he managed the graduate programs of the School of Mathematics.

Harrell works on the Schrödinger equation, which describes nonrelativistic matter on the atomic scale, and on similar differential equations. His research has focused primarily on semiclassical quantum mechanics and on the effects of geometry on the eigenvalues of differential equations. He has advised eight PhD dissertations and two MS theses, and has written numerous articles with at least thirty-five coauthors.

Harrell is an enthusiastic outdoorsman, and among his other interests are travel and world cultures. He has for example participated in many scientific events in developing countries. He has two grown children and lives in Atlanta with his wife, a law professor, when not off somewhere satisfying his wide-ranging curiosity.
