Bio/Research

Dr. Nissimov is an environmental microbiologist and an aquatic virus ecologist. His focal points of interest are elucidating the interplay of hosts and their viruses in the context of aquatic biogeochemistry and energy flow, discovering aspects of algal-virus co-evolutionary processes and mechanisms of host resistance, and revealing the effects of environmental change on the fate of ecologically important viruses. He has a keen interest in also developing new host-virus model systems, and investigating the applied potential of viruses.
