Meet Aramco innovator Mike Traver who examines carbon capture for marine transportation.
Mike Traver's first love was airplanes and as a child he explored all the mechanical systems on cars, trucks, ships, and planes.
Now he is a senior engineer at the Aramco Research Center-Detroit who chairs the Transport Workstream for the Oil & Gas Climate Initiative.
With an aptitude for math and science, Mike says he was always interested in mechanical things, so after high school he attended Worcester Polytechnic Institute to study mechanical engineering. He later earned a master’s degree and doctorate in mechanical engineering from West Virginia University.
He has always been drawn to alternative energy and engine technologies. His senior project for his undergraduate degree was a solar powered aircraft, and his graduate work focused on diesel engine combustion and emissions.
