Dr Tatiana Vereshchagina

Inorganic Chemistry

Russian Academy of Sciences

Dr Tatiana Vereshchagina graduated from the Faculty of Natural Sciences at Novosibirsk State University, Russia, and started her scientific career at the same university as a biochemist. From 1986 to date, she has been a scientific officer, currently Leading Researcher, at the Institute of Chemistry and Chemical Technology at the Siberian branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (ICCT SB RAS), Krasnoyarsk Science Center. She received a PhD in Physical Chemistry in 1991 and a Doctor of Chemical Sciences in the Technology of Inorganic Substances and Materials in 2014. Her research interests include the chemistry of inorganic and hybrid functional materials for environmental and biomedical applications, hydrothermal synthesis, ion-exchange, and composite materials.

From 1986 to the mid 1990s, she was involved in work on the development of zeolite sorbents for entrapping hydrogen chloride from the vapor-gaseous waste of silicon production. Now she is mainly focused on the chemistry of inorganic sorbents and immobilization of radionuclides from liquid nuclear waste in chemically stable mineral-like matrices using coal fly ash microspheres. She has participated in US-Russian projects launched on the basis of the memorandum of cooperation in the areas of environmental restoration and waste management, under the umbrella of the Peaceful Uses of Atomic Energy Agreement of 1972 between the US and Russian governments.

Tatiana has published about 50 papers in peer-reviewed Russian and international journals. Among them, 28 papers are indexed in Scopus and Web of Science databases with an h-index of 7. She is also an expert of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
