I am exploring T cell specificity in the context of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection.  This includes their interactions with antigen-presenting cells and characterization of these T cells throughout the course of TB infection.  I will be using in vivo (murine) methods as well as analysis techniques such as single-cell RNA/TCR sequencing and PIC-sequencing to in an effort to understand how antigen specificity may contribute to or direct T-cell phenotype and activation.
