Siyu Chen received his bachelor’s degree from the Chemistry and Biology Combined Major program at Osaka University (Japan) in 2015. His undergraduate research focused on Chemical Biology, constructing model cell lines to quantify synthetic oligomers. Then he moved to the field of colloidal science during his D.Phil at the University of Oxford. In particular, he studied the interactions of colloidal monolayers with the ice-water interface. In the Biological Physics and Morphogenesis group at the MPIDS, his current interests include studying the behavior of Physarum polycephalum under light stimulus.
