resistance, toxicology and evolutionary biology. A native of Grand Rapids, MI, he received his A.A. (honors) from Grand Rapids Junior College, his B.S. in biochemistry (Honors, Michigan State), his M.S. in entomology (Michigan State), and his Ph.D. in entomology and toxicology (University of California, Riverside), and he was a postdoctoral associate with John Casida at the University of California, Berkeley before joining the faculty at Cornell in 1986.

A pioneer in the field of insecticide resistance, his outstanding work has led to a greater understanding of the mechanisms, evolution, and population genetics involved. He is the author of more than 170 peer-reviewed publications and has mentored numerous graduate and undergraduate students, postdoctoral associates, and visiting scientists. He was the leader of a global effort that resulted in sequencing the house fly genome. His recent work has expanded into novel methods of insect control and the evolution of sex determination in house flies. He has received many awards and honors, including the UC Riverside Outstanding Young Alumnus Award (1992), the Prominent Achievement Award from the Pesticide Science Society of Japan (1996), the Orkin Award for Research Excellence (1997), the Paul A. Dahm Memorial Lecturer (1999), the Daljit S. and Elaine Sarkaria Professor of Insect Physiology and Toxicology (2002), and the ESA Recognition Award in Insect Physiology, Biochemistry, and Toxicology (2012).

Scott has made many contributions beyond his research. He has provided leadership to ESA by serving as President of the Physiology, Biochemistry, and Toxicology Section, symposia organizer, and judge for student competitions. He currently serves on the editorial boards for Pesticide Biochemistry and Physiology (since 1997) and Insect Molecular Biology (since 2008). He served as department chair from 2007-2013 and oversaw the merger of the separate Ithaca and Geneva departments into a single department in
