Dr. Inanc Senocak is an Associate Professor with the Department of Mechanical and
Biomedical Engineering. Before joining Boise State in 2007, Dr. Senocak served for two
years as a postdoctoral research associate at the Los Alamos National Laboratory where he
worked in the area of stochastic source inversion of atmospheric plumes. Prior to that
appointment he worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Turbulence Research,
which is jointly operated by Stanford University and NASA. In addition to teaching and
advising students, Dr. Senocak conducts research in such areas as computational fluid
dynamics (CFD), wind power forecasting, parallel computing, cavitation and multiphase
flows, turbulence modeling, atmospheric transport and dispersion.
