Scott Yost is an Associate Professor of physics at The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina, Charleston, SC, USA. He previously held a visiting faculty position at Princeton University, NJ, USA, from 2007 to 2008, a faculty position at Baylor University, Waco, Tex, USA, from 2003 to 2007, and also taught and conducted research at the University of Tennessee, knoxville, USA, from 1991 to 2003 and the University of Florida, Gainesville, USA, from 1987 to 1991. Yost has had short-term visiting research positions at Princeton University, NJ, USA, in 2009 and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) from 2010 to 2011. He earned a Ph.D. degree in physics from Princeton University, NJ, USA, in 1987 with a dissertation on string loops in background fields. He earned a B.S. degree in physics and mathematics from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Pa, USA, in 1982. In 1991, Yost’s interests moved from string theory to particle phenomenology. Presently, he works on higher-order radiative corrections and Monte Carlo programmes for LHC physics. He is also interested in the mathematical aspects of Feynman diagrams, especially hypergeometric function representations.
