Professor Scott is Director of the Interface Analysis Centre (IAC) in the School of Physics at the University of Bristol, and lead for the newly established National Nuclear User Facility for Hot Robotics. He is also Co-Director (Science) of the South West Nuclear Hub, which provides a focus for civil nuclear research, innovation, and skills in the southwest of the UK, bringing together a strategic alliance of academic, industrial, and governmental members. Professor Scott’s research expertise is around the detection and characterization of nuclear materials, to aid the prediction of their behavior in engineered and environmental scenarios. This includes a specific strand of activity relating to nuclear robotics and sensors. He works closely with the nuclear industry in the UK and overseas to deliver characterization and decontamination solutions for nuclear decommissioning. Research has been funded in association with a variety of organizations including the AWE, CERN, Sellafield and EDF with complementary funding from EPSRC, STFC, NERC, NATO, the Royal Society and Royal Academy of Engineering.
