Scott is the Manager for the Chemical Applications, Research and Training (CART) group and is a Research Scientist. He gained his PhD degree in mechanical engineering from Purdue University and has held professorship positions at Bradley University and Michigan Technological University.

In his academic career, Scott taught courses in fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, design, electronics & instrumentation, MATLAB, combustion, and spray technology. In 2002, 2003 and 2006, Scott was a NASA-ASEE summer faculty fellow at NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center and in 2012-13 he was a visiting Erskine Fellow at the University of Canterbury. Scott has experience in Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), Wind Tunnels, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), vehicle aerodynamics, and water sprinkler systems.

He has particular interests in:

  • Spray and droplet measurements
  • Spray modelling
  • High speed photography
