  • DPhil candidate in Musculoskeletal Sciences

Biomedical engineer interested in improving clinical orthopaedic practice through engineering advancement.

Scott is a DPhil (PhD) candidate in Musculoskeletal Sciences. He was awarded the Clarendon Scholarship in 2018 and is currently studying under the supervision of Andrew PriceSara Khalid, and Karen Barker. Scott’s research focuses on the integration of wearable technology into clinical orthopaedic practice to monitor rehabilitation and improve recovery following total knee replacement surgery.

Scott served as the Engineering Director of the Orthopaedic Biomedical Engineering Laboratory for the Joint Replacement Surgeons of Indiana Research Foundation (2007-2016), where he led numerous biomechanics studies focused on improving implant design and surgical techniques in knee and hip arthroplasty. In that position, Scott was also responsible for the educational activities of the foundation and supervised over 40 undergraduate and master’s level engineering research students. From 2016 to 2018, Scott, his wife Katie, and their three children lived in Chiang Mai, Thailand, in volunteer support of the anti-human trafficking NGO, International Justice Mission.

Scott previously studied at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana, obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (2005) and a Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering (2007). In 2014 he was awarded the Distinguished Young Alumni Award by the institute for his work in orthopaedic research and teaching.
