“Three Thesis Chapters”

I started painting science themes while writing my doctoral thesis at UC Santa Cruz.  Our research was directed towards the development of fluorescent sensors to detect and determine the concentration of glucose and other sugars.  These paintings reflected some of the major investigations that we conducted in this research program.

“Variation in Viologen”

“Fluorophore Variations”

“Immobilizing the Sugar Sensing System”

My thesis title?  - “Optical Monosaccharide Detection Using Anionic Fluorescent Dyes and Boronic Acid-Modified Viologens and Quenchers”
