Mike Strauch is a research assistant at the Laboratory for Aviation and the Environment. Originally from Sicklerville, NJ, Mike attended Ohio State, graduating in 2017 with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering. After graduating, Mike joined the GE Aviation Edison Engineering Development Program (EEDP) in Lynn, MA, where he had roles in mechanical systems, manufacturing improvement, and control systems design. Concurrent with fulfilling his graduate requirements, Mike is a Lead Systems Engineer at GE Aviation. In his free time Mike enjoys skiing, swimming, and cheering on his favorite Philly sports teams.
Mike’s research is focused on understanding and characterizing the mechanical design constraints of a Post Combustion Emissions Control (PCEC) catalyst. These devices, if implemented in aircraft, would nearly eliminate harmful NOx emissions from aviation.
