Current Research Interests
Tian is currently working on a research project that involves constructing mathematical models for T cell differentiation. T cells are unique type of cells in the sense that they have multiple stable steady states, which would correspond to different states of cell differentiation. By building the mathematical model, we will be able to understand how robust the signaling pathways are with respect to the cell-fate determination, and how the history of stimulation affects T cell differentiation.
