Scott Nokleby is currently a Visiting Professor at the Mining Systems Laboratory and a Professor in the Department of Automotive, Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at UOIT. He is the Director of the Mechatronic and Robotic Systems Laboratory and is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of New Brunswick. From May 2010 until August 2011, Dr. Nokleby was a Visiting Researcher at Cameco Corporation. He was also the past Associate Cameco Research Chair in Nuclear Fuel at UOIT. Dr. Nokleby received his BEng (Mechanical with Management Option) in 1997, his MASc (Mechanical) in 1999, and his PhD (Mechanical) in 2003, all from the University of Victoria. He joined UOIT in 2004 as an Assistant Professor and played a key role in developing UOIT’s robotics and mechatronics courses as well as its graduate programs in Mechanical Engineering. More recently, Dr. Nokleby led the development of UOIT’s new Mechatronics Engineering Program.
Dr. Nokleby’s research areas include: Robotics; Mechatronics; Mechanisms; Automation; Advanced Kinematics of Robots and Mechanisms; Redundant Manipulator Systems; Mobile Robots; Mobile-Manipulator Systems; Autonomous Unmanned Aerial Vehicles; Mechanism and Robot Design; and Optimal Design. His particular focus is on the application of advanced kinematics for the control of redundant manipulator systems including joint redundant arms, redundantly-actuated parallel manipulators, and mobile-manipulator systems. Dr. Nokleby has attracted extensive funding for his research from both government and industry. He is has active research programs with Cameco Corporation and Ontario Power Generation.
Dr. Nokleby is a licensed Professional Engineer in the provinces of Ontario and British Columbia.
