Scott joined the Impact Centre as the Communications Coordinator in 2011 to help promote the growing Techno workshop and other new programs to the university and wider community. In his time at the Impact Centre he has also been involved in a number of activities, including helping organize the annual SSLNet workshop, putting together the monthly newsletter, overseeing various social media channels, editing grants, and acting as the liaison between the University and external communications departments and the Impact Centre.
Scott is involved in a number of activities outside of the Impact Centre. While working on his Bachelor’s in Chemistry at McGill he never thought about entrepreneurship or commercialization; however, after completing his Master’s at the University of Toronto and participating in the inaugural Techno workshop he co-founded an infection control company called Lunanos. The company is currently developing a colour-changing cleaning indicator for healthcare settings to prevent hospital acquired infections. He is also currently a Ph.D. student in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Toronto working on understanding and developing methods for interrupting the sporulation mechanism of bacteria. Both of these activities reflect his interest in preventing and treating emerging and costly bacterial infections.
Outside of the office and lab, and depending on the season, Scott can be found on the slopes, trekking through the wilderness, or singing with a community choir.
