Scott and his students apply basic memory research to solve real-world problems. His current focus is on eyewitness identification, especially the role of the lineup. His approach includes the application of quantitatively-specified models. The National Science Foundation has supported this work, and Scott prepared an amicus brief for the U.S. Supreme Court for petitioner Kevin Keith.
