LI Yisen 李逸森 / PhD (2017) in Physics

Supervised by Prof. Wu Yilin


  • B.S. in Physics Beijing Normal University, 2013–2017
  • Ph.D. candidate, Department of Physics, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, 2017–present

Research Interest

  • L-form bacteria, known as cell wall-deficient (CWD) bacteria, have a natural resistance to wall-target antibiotic since they lack cell walls. Their morphology varies a lot due to the lack of a cell wall envelope. As a result, L-forms can be seen as active droplets to study nonequilibrium active matter physics.
