David Evans - Contact Information

Contacting Me

The best way to reach me is by email to evans@virginia.edu or through our research group slack.

I'm usually pretty good about responding to emails that deserve a response (meaning that someone went to some effort to email me personally), so if I don't respond please make sure your message couldn't be interpreted as a mass-mailing and try sending it again. I am more likely to receive and respond to your message if you include a meaningful subject line and send a plain text email. If you have a good reason to need to reach me some other way, here's how to contact me by phone.

If you are a prospective research student not already at UVA, please read my Advice for Prospective Research Students before contacting me first. This applies to anyone outside of UVA interested in joining my research group, either as a graduate student at UVA or for an internship or temporary visit.

If you are already a student at UVA, it will impress me if you read and follow it, but it is okay to contact me directly to set up a meeting without reading that first. If you want to set up a meeting, the best way to do this is to offer to come during my office hours if you can and let me know other times when you are available to meet.

Office Hours

For Spring 2022 (18 January – 2 May 2022), I'm holding office hours after my class on Wednesdays (the class ends at 1:45pm in Olsson 018). Depending on the weather, I will either be somewhere outside or in my Rice 507 office after that. If you are not in my class and want to find me for office hours, you'll probably find me back at my Rice Hall 507 office by 2:00pm, but you can also look for me at Olsson 018 after my class.

If you would like to meet with me at other times (either in person or on zoom), please schedule time to meet using:


Students in my class have priority during my scheduled office hours (and I announce any disruptions in my usual office hours schedule on the course slack), but I am always happy to meet with any students who want to discuss computer science, your own projects, my research projects, social justice, lego universality, computer security, privacy, starting a business, how to get the most out of college, soccer, or poker. If you're not in my class, feel free to drop by during office hours, find me in my office when the door is open, or use https://davidevans.youcanbook.me to schedule another time to meet.


My office is Rice Hall, room 507, located at 85 Engineer's Way.

DuckDuckGo, Microsoft, and even Google can tell you how to find it.
