Dr. Burak Sencer received his Ma.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering at the University of British Columbia (UBC), in Vancouver, Canada in 2005 and 2009, He studied kinematics, dynamics and motion control of computer numerical controlled (CNC) machine tool. Upon graduation, he moved to Japan and has worked as JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) Post-Doctoral scholar and Research Assistant Professor at the Nagoya University between 2010-2014. During his post-doctoral followship Dr. Sencer closely collaborates with Japanese precision machine tool builders and manufacturing industries and tackes problems on motion control, passive and active vibration mitigation and machining process control. He has 4 Japanese patents on motion and vibration control technology that is deployed on modern CNC machines. Dr. Sencer joined the Oregon State University (OSU) in 2015 as assistant professor. His research laboratory, Manufacturing Process Control Laboratory (MPCL) conducts research on precision motion control, dynamics of production machines and machining processes. He has received ASME’s Blackall Machine Tool and Gage award in 2019 on his work on passive vibration mitigation. Owing to his industrial research, he has recently received OSU’s university-wide industry partnering award. Dr. Sencer has authored over 30 journal publications in manufacturing automation field focusing on motion control, vibration mitigation and machining processes. Dr. Sencer serves as chair for the Manufacturing Equipment and Automation Technical Committee at ASME’s MSEC conferences, and he has been actively contributing to ASPE Controls and Mechatronics TLC since 2015.
