A/Prof Jason Scott is a Deputy Leader and a Senior Research Fellow in the Particle and Catalysis Research Group. He joined the PartCat group in 2002 and has extensive experience in particle fabrication, photocatalysis, photoelectrocatalysis and heterogeneous catalysis. He also has a strong interest in developing sustainable technologies to address the challenges in securing Australian and the world's energy resources as well as tackle environmental pollution. His research focused on developing new materials, heterogeneous catalysis, and photo(electro)catalysis for environmental remediation and sustainable energy applications.

A/Prof Scott has successfully supervised/co-supervised 21 PhD students and 7 Masters students in the field of catalysis/photocatalysis and solid waste management. Currently he has supervises/co-supervises 13 PhD students. He has also supervised 50+ undergraduate students (Honors thesis projects) while with PartCat. He is regularly asked to examine PhD theses in photocatalysis and catalysis and has reviewed over 150 manuscripts for various international journals including Nature Catalysis, Nature Communications, Angewandte Chemie, ACS Catalysis, Applied Catalysis B: Environmental, Journal of Materials Chemistry: A, Journal of Physical Chemistry, Journal of Catalysis, Chemical Engineering Journal and others pertaining to materials, catalysis and photocatalysis. He has also been an ARC International Reader over the period 2007 - 2019. He has an H-index of 33, has published 1 book chapters and co-authored 121 refereed journal articles with his work cited over 3000 times.

Competitive Grants and Leadership

A/Prof Scott was a Lead Investigator in a 4 year Australian Coal Association Research Program (ACARP) Project (2008 - 2012) and also a Project Manager for a 2 year CRC-WMPC project that successfully scaled up particle preparation and application of a magnetic photocatalyst for water treatment. He is currently the lead CI on a 3-year ARENA Project (2019-2021) to sustainably extract hydrogen from waste biomass. He is/has been CI on the following ARC grants:
