Dr. Scott Noble grew up in South-Western Ontario, received a M.Sc. degree from the University of Saskatchewan, and B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Guelph. He is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan. While at the University of Guelph, Scott developed an interest in applying engineering to problems in agriculture, and weed identification for site specific spraying in particular. This lead to study of reflectance spectroscopy and imaging, remote sensing, and seeding equipment. Currently a Co-PI in the Field Phenometrics theme of the Plant Phenotyping and Imaging Research Centre (P2IRC), Scott’s team is working on developing various field instrumentation, phenotype development, and plant optical property modelling.
