Dr. Senocak received his B.S. degree in mechanical engineering from the Middle East Technical University in Ankara, Turkey in 1998. He received his Ph.D. in aerospace engineering from the University of Florida,Gainesville in 2002. After his graduation, he held postdoctoral positions at the Center for Turbulence Research (jointly operated by NASA Ames Research Center and Stanford University) and at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, where he worked on large eddy simulation of atmospheric boundary layer flows and source inversion of atmospheric dispersion events, respectively. His research interests include computational fluid dynamics (CFD), wind energy forecasting, parallel computing with GPUs, cavitation and multiphase flows, turbulence modeling, atmospheric transport and dispersion, and inverse problems. Dr. Senocak is the recipient of the National Science Foundation's CAREER Award.
