Scott is an Electronics Technician for the USGS, Columbia River Research Laboratory. 

Research Interests:

I am an Electronics Technician with the U.S. Geological Survey’s Western Fisheries Research Center stationed at the Columbia River Research Laboratory in Cook, Washington.  My fisheries career began in 1992 and has focused on the evaluation of anadromous salmon throughout the Pacific Northwestern United States.  The majority of my career has involved research evaluating the behavior, passage, and survival of juvenile salmonids in relation to downstream fish passage facilities.  I have been responsible for leading the design, installation, and maintenance of equipment for various projects utilizing state-of-the-art radio and acoustic telemetry techniques at many Columbia, Snake, and Willamette River hydroelectric dams, as well as in the Sacramento–San Joaquin River Delta.
