Scott joined the group in 2009 and has worked on the antineutrino detection, fast neutron counting, and fast neutron imaging programs. His current interests include neutron spectroscopy and multiplicity detectors. Scott worked at PNNL in 2007 and 2008 on homeland security and nuclear safeguards projects, focusing on Monte Carlo modeling of detector performance for photon, neutron, and beta detectors. Scott received a Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences from the University of Michigan. His dissertation project was to implement a rugged, advanced, segmented anode into a high-pressure xenon ionization chamber to reduce microphonic problems associated with conventional electrode designs.
