My name is Cameron Naylor, and I am a fifth year who joined the Clowers group in fall of 2016. I graduated from Western Carolina University with a B.S. in chemistry in 2015 and worked briefly as a lab analyst for Eastman Chemical Company in the cellulose esters division before coming to WSU.

Trapped Ion Mobility Spectrometer coupled to a Bruker microTOF mass spectrometer

My current research involves exploring fundamentals of Trapped Ion Mobility Mass Spectrometry (TIMS) and how they relate to drift tube IMS (DTIMS) using our printed circuit board IMS designs. Some of the on going projects involve using thermometer ions to assess the energy ions experience within the TIMS device and trying to optimize calibration of high mobility ions. Additionally, I am interested in examining ion-neutral interactions in mixed drift gas environments and how that changes mobility measurements.
