Lackowitz, AntonName: Anton Lachowicz
Title of Project:
 The Secrets of Hydrogen Bonding: A study of enhanced acidity in gas-phase polyols
Advisor: John Poutsma
Honors Department: Chemistry

I am studying the effects of hydrogen bonding on gas-phase acidities using a flowing afterglow triple quadrupole mass spectrometer.

The fellowship allows me to give a much greater depth to my research by dedicating many more hours than I could just during my senior semesters.

Hometown: Chesapeake, VA
Majors: Chemistry
Future Plans: I am endeavoring to attend medical school and join the Public Health Service as a Physician. From there I would like to be assigned to the Coast Guard and ultimately work as a flight surgeon.
Hobbies: I enjoy weight lifting and skiing in the winter. I love playing the guitar and piano. I also have fun volunteering at my local hospital and through several other volunteer programs.
Fun Fact: I have visited Europe several times as history is my second favorite subject, especially before the industrial revolution.
