G. Scott Graham

Professor Emeritus G. Scott Graham passed away suddenly on May 2, 2013. Scott joined the University of Toronto Mississauga faculty in 1974 and served in a number of roles including Discipline Representative for Computer Science and the Interim Chair of the Department of Mathematical and Computational Sciences.   Scott was also passionately committed to academic integrity and worked as a Dean's Designate with respect to academic integrity cases from 2003 until his untimely passing. These roles indicate the boundless dedication Scott brought to the service he gave this university.


Scott's research interests lay in Computer Systems. He first worked on system modeling and memory protection schemes, about which he co-authored a book: Quantitative System Performance: Computer System Analysis Using Queueing Network Models (Prentice-Hall, 1984). More recently, Scott became known for his work in Digital Forensics. Even after his retirement in 2012, he taught a popular 4th year course on digital forensics, enthusiastically applied his knowledge to academic integrity cases as the Dean's Designate, and served as the President of the High Technology Crime Investigation Association, Ontario Chapter.

He will be deeply missed by his colleagues in the department, the dean's office and members of the UTM community.
