Scott studied computational mathematics at the Australian National University and the University of Chicago. His core skills are in algorithms for solving complex algebraic and combinatorial problems. He is currently exploring applications of these techniques to the statistical design of experiments and to theoretical physics.

Scott has collaborated with researchers from across the world, including New Zealand, the United States, Vietnam and the Netherlands.

Since joining the University of Canberra, Scott has taught Discrete Mathematics as well as upper level mathematics units for software engineers and teachers. Scott also lead the design team for the Quantitative Stream of the Mastery with Flipped Teaching (MFLIP) program. He also supervises PhD and Masters students in mathematics, mathematical statistics, and mathematical economics.
