The EERC is pleased to welcome Tyler Newman as a Research Engineer. Tyler’s work focuses on designing, fabricating, and operating new or developing value-added technologies, particularly in the area of carbon capture. His expertise and interests include design, modeling, and fabrication of experimental equipment and machine components, gasification and combustion technology, and fluid power systems.

Tyler holds a B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from UND. As a student employee, Tyler worked at the EERC assisting in a laboratory, creating piping and instrumentation diagrams, and preparing shop drawings for fabrication of equipment. Prior to his position at the EERC, he served as a Mechanical Engineer at Odra, LLC.

“I’ve wanted to be a mechanical engineer since I was young, as far back as I can remember, and never considered anything else. I toured the EERC when I was in middle or high school, but it wasn’t until I started working here as a student that I could really see and understand what people were working toward. That’s when I became interested in energy research,” said Tyler.

“I like the innovation at the EERC. Energy is a hot topic, and it’s fun working on the leading edge of global energy and environmental challenges such as carbon capture,” he added. “I’m also enjoying the steep learning curve of advanced technologies here and the excellent collaboration with colleagues.”

A native of Grand Forks, Tyler has many hobbies, including endurance sports like ultrarunning, mountain biking, and off-road triathlons and enjoys hunting and fishing. Tyler likes continually learning new things, so it is perhaps not surprising that he is an avid podcast listener. He also works with 3-D printing, has some computer programming and computer vision experience, and plans to become more proficient in all of those.
