My name is Cameron Naylor. 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. I joined the Clowers group in the fall of 2016 and graduated with a Ph.D. in spring 2021.
My research involved exploring the fundamentals of Trapped Ion Mobility Mass Spectrometry (TIMS) and low-cost/easy assembly drift tube IMS (DTIMS) designs. A core theme through my research involved using varied and mixed drift gases to enhance separations and examine ion-neutral interactions in mixed drift gas environments. Some of the other projects involve using thermometer ions to assess the energy ions experience within the TIMS device and trying to optimize calibration of high mobility ions.
