Interests and Hobbies
I am currently broadly interested in how both genetic diversity and T-cell repertoire diversity influence T-cell responses to disease.  I am trying to understand these diverse T-cell responses by using wild derived mice along with inbred strains to compare the dynamics of response to disease, either autoimmune or pathogenic. On a more personal note, my interests also include any outdoor activity that will get me into the mountains. Once I am there I do a lot of hunting, fishing, photography or just take a moment and relax.
