About

Jonathan Scott holds a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Southampton. His PhD work involved investigating online news discussions, and using graph algorithms and social network structures to select notable and representative content. See here for a list of publications.

He previously worked at the BBC, first building and maintaining services to deliver personalised recommendations and notifications, and later designing algorithms for a new UGC moderation platform.

He currently works as a Software Engineer at Google, working mainly on the Android Enterprise project.
