Occupation: Professor and Father Joseph Lauritis Chair of Teaching and Technology, Duquesne University
Background: Evanseck teaches theoretical biophysical and physical organic chemistry, focusing his research on biomolecular energy and motion. He is past chair of the National Science Foundation Leadership Group, which serves as liaison between the foundation and its undergraduate research sites around the country.

Quote: "I like the balance between teaching and research (at Duquesne). Some places are skewed one way or the other, either toward research or teaching. Here, they expect you to do two full-time jobs - which doesn't sound great but it is."
