Undergraduate Students

Dr. Scott continues to mentor undergraduate students as well, including four current undergraduates.


Formerly mentored students have gone on to success in technology sector jobs, including Google, Microsoft, and Amazon, as well as various Defense (computer vision/HPC) and Finance (HPC, high-frequency trading) industries. Other students have successfully pursued entrepreneurial activities or graduate studies.


Undergraduate student researchers have included numerous Undergraduate Research Fellows, (1) McNair Scholar, and (1) Discovery Fellow.
