DTN Entomologist
Scott Williams

From DuPage County in Illinois to Delaware, Ohio, Dr. Scott Williams has lived along the I-80 corridor for much of his life. Now serving as the entomologist for DTN's office in West Lafayette, Indiana, he acts as the in-house expert on all things arthropod-related. Dr. Williams earned his doctorate degree at Purdue University, spent three years with the Purdue Improved Crop Storage (PICS) Lab, and ultimately landed a position with Spensa Techologies, working on applying tech solutions to pest management problems. When Spensa was purchased by DTN, Dr. Williams came along for the ride and is excited to see where the journey takes him next.
