Undergraduate Research

This is a compilation of the work I was able to participate in at The University of Akron Mass Spectrometry lab. I worked as a undergrad with a graduate student, Nick A. under Dr. Chrys Wesdemiotis. Nick was analyzing industrial samples of the non-ionic surfactant - polyglycerol, when I joined. He had me analyze samples myself, interpret raw data, perform molecular dynamic calculations, and draw conclusions about the samples. A summary of the mentioned list is below. This project was a large part of his dissertation. - A big thank you to Nick and Dr. Wesdemiotis 

Research Summary Presentation

This presentation was my final summary of my undergraduate research. I was not only lucky enough to work in a state-of-the art Mass Spectrometry Lab, I was also able to work with some great researchers too. A big thank you to Chrys Wesdemiotis at The University of Akron for allowing me to work in his wonderful lab. 

While scrolling through this presentation, you will be introduced to the primary concern of the research - To successfully characterize (by size and shape) the polymer polyglycerol using Mass Spectrometry Techniques such as:
