Tatiana Vishnivetskaya is a Research Assistant Professor in the Center for Environmental Biotechnology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Dr. Vishnivetskaya holds a Ph.D. in Biochemistry, and a M.Sc. in Biology with a major in Microbiology. Her research focuses on uncovering microbial biodiversity and metabolic functions in extreme environments, including perennially frozen deep subsurface sediments, and hot springs. She is interested in understanding how microbial communities evolve during environmental changes. She also wants to know what makes bacteria of the same genus ubiquitous and allow them to occupy diverse habitats along thermal gradients. In her research, she applies a variety of classical microbiological and next-generation high-throughput approaches. Her collaborative research is supported by the NSF and DOE funding.
