    Scott, a Senior NASA Postdoctoral Fellow at NASA-GSFC and assistant professor at the University of Tulsa (on-leave), is a theoretical/computational astrophysicist interested in black holes, their accretion disks, and the radiation magnetohydrodynamics physics inherent to those systems.  He is an expert in computational methods of general relativistic magnetohydrodynamics (GRMHD) codes, and lately uses them to simulate accreting systems about single and binary black holes.  He has also designed novel time-dependent  grid techniques (e.g., dynamic nonuniform grids, overlapping misaligned multi-patch methods) to capture the variety of time/space scales of the problems like the accreting binary black hole problem, and is now expanding his repertoire of methods to include nuclear physics techniques for simulating the bright electromagnetic and gravitational wave signals produced by neutron star mergers.
