Thurnau Professor at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and was the 2009 National President of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. He received his B.S. from the University of Illinois and his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Colorado. Scott recently received a doctor honoris causa degree from the Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Tarragona, Spain and in 1985 he received a diploma from the New Orleans School of Cooking.
He is the author of 12 books, including the Elements of Chemical Reaction Engineering, 5th Edition, which are estimated to be used by 70-80% of all chemical engineering programs in the United States and also dominate the worldwide market. In addition, he co-authored the 3rd edition of Strategies for Creative Problem Solving with Steven LeBlanc and Benjamin Rizzo. Scott and his students are well known for their work on the application of chemical reaction engineering principles to the petroleum industry. He has graduated 45 PhDs and they have published over 240 research articles in areas such as acidization of petroleum wells, gelation kinetics wax deposition in subsea pipelines and asphaltene flocculation and deposition kinetics. In 1996 Scott was recipient of the Warren K. Lewis award from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers for contributions to chemical engineering education and he is the recipient of 14 named lectureships.
