Post Doctoral Researcher at the Department of Biology and Biological Engineering, Chalmers University of Technology.


Scott obtained both his BSc and PhD from the University of Guelph in Canada. His PhD work, completed under the supervision of Stephen Seah, was on structure-function studies of enzymes involved in the metabolism of aromatic lignin fragments in Pseudomonas [1, 2, 3]. Shortly after completing his PhD studies, he started a post-doctoral research position with Johan Larsbrink at Chalmers University. There he has been working collaboratively with Jenny Arnling Bååth and Leila Lo Leggio on structure-function studies of bacterial CE15 members.
