Research Group: 

Scott was a CNS Graduate Fellow from 2007 to 2008. He joined the Soh Lab in 2005 and recieved his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering. He received his B.Eng, summa cum laude, from McMaster University in Engineering Physics where he worked in the Mascher Positron Annihilation Spectroscopy Lab and Thompson Molecular Beam Epitaxy Lab. While in the Soh Lab, Scott's work has focused on two areas: 1) integrated microfluidic electrochemical platforms for pathogen detection and point-of-care diagnostics; and 2) microfluidic magnetophoresis for the enrichment of circulating tumor cells and isolation of rare stem cells. In addition to his research efforts, Scott is currently working towards the California Certificate in Undergraduate Teaching. Scott is the recipient of the Department of Mechanical Engineering Best Teaching Assistant (2009) and College of Engineering Outstanding Teaching Assistant (2008) awards, and has held fellowships from both the Center for Nanotechnolgy in Society, and the Center for Nano-scale Innovation for Defense (CNID).
