Credentials: Chemistry Ph.D., Fall 2020 (Weisshaar)
Hometown: Chongqing, China
- Professor James C. Weisshaar
- Future Plan
- I will continue my research career as a postdoc after graduation and study the spatiotemporal organization and dynamics of chromatin.
- Single Molecule Study of the Mechanism of Attack of the Human Antimicrobial Peptide LL-37 on E. coli
- Yanyu Zhu, Sonisilpa Mohapatra, and James C. Weisshaar, Rigidification of the E. coli Cytoplasm by the Human Antimicrobial Peptide LL-37 Revealed by Superresolution Fluorescence Microscopy, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 2019, 116(3), 1017-1026
I enjoyed the time of hiking in summer with friends.
I received my bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Peking University in Beijing. I joined physical chemistry path and Prof. James Weisshaar’s lab in 2015. In the Weisshaar lab, I have applied single molecule fluorescence microscopy to study the bacteriostatic and bactericidal mechanisms of human antimicrobial peptide LL-37 on E.coli. I have also studied the spatial distribution and dynamics of E.coli transcriptional and translational machinery. Outside research, I enjoy skiing, playing badminton and travelling.
