Mike Scott's Home Page
Greetings! In the spirit of my friend Robert Duvall of Duke University I want to make sure you are in the right place. "Mike Scott" is a very common name. I am not the lead singer of the Waterboys, nor am I the former major league pitcher. I am not this computer scientist. And I am not the fictional character from the television show The Office. I am a lecturer at the University of Texas at Austin in the Computer Science Department.
I was raised in St. Charles, Missouri. I was an undergraduate at Stanford University receiving a B.S. in Industrial Engineering. I later attended Rennselaer Polytechnic Institute and received a M.S. in Computer Science. Before becoming a full time teacher I spent some time doing something completely different.
My office is Gates 6.304 in the north tower, Dell Computer Science Hall
