Over the past decade, Scott has worked at the intersection of technology and policymaking. He began his career working in Congress, first as an aide to a congressman from his home state of Florida and later as an advisor to the Chairman of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee. During this time, Scott had the opportunity to help shape U.S. technology policy, including coauthoring several laws related to intelligence gathering and international data sharing, which were signed into law by both Democratic and Republican presidents.
Scott's MBA studies at Georgetown University led him to his current role at the Microsoft AI for Good Lab, which involves connecting technology products with policy frameworks. He collaborates with national governments, United Nations agencies, and data scientists to leverage cutting-edge technology, specifically in using AI to improve environmental conservation, renewable energy deployment, and public health.
