Scott, Daniel J, PhD
I completed my undergraduate degree in physics from the University of Bath, UK in 2002. During my placement year, I worked as an electronic design engineer at Swindon Silicon Systems Ltd. Upon graduation in 2002, I returned to Swindon Silicon Systems Ltd to complete my project on an electronic control system for test equipment. I then worked as a software engineer for P&Q International, a company providing time and attendance software, for 18 months before commencing my PhD in chemistry at University College London, UK (UCL). My PhD thesis is entitled 'The discovery of new functional oxides using combinatorial techniques and advanced data mining algorithms'. After completing my PhD, I worked as a software developer for Orbis Technology, an online gambling solutions provider, for 9 months before joining MIT, USA as a research engineer.
