Scott Royal, Ph.D., joined Westat in November 2017 as President and was elected to the Board of Directors in May 2018.

Dr. Royal has a strong background in public health research, with a focus on HIV prevention and its impact on disadvantaged communities. Throughout his career, he has conducted a range of research on HIV, led large epidemiologic projects, and built up public health and epidemiologic practice capacities. Over the years, he has transitioned from frontline research to corporate leadership where he excels in bringing talented people together and enhancing how they perform on all dimensions of research work.

In Dr. Royal’s time away from the office, he heads to the beach, where he relaxes by cycling on nature trails, discovering new wines, and reading, with a particular penchant for new fiction.
