Prof Dicinoski graduated with BSc Hons (CQU) in 1991 and a PhD in 1995 (CQU). He then spent 2.5 years as a Senior Research Scientist wit the Council for Mineral Technology in South Africa and 2 years at the University of South Africa. Prof Dicinoski then returned to the University of Tasmania in 1999 and was Head of the School of Chemistry from 2010-2013 and Deputy Director of the Australian Centre for Research on Separation Science from 2006-2013. Prof Dicinoski has been awarded national citations for teaching and is a Fellow of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute. In 2013 he left the University of Tasmania to accept the position as the Head Scientist for the Reserve Bank of Australia. However, he has been appointed as an Adjunct Professor with the University of Tasmania.
His research interests revolve around the general areas of analytical (in particular separation science) and physical chemistry, along with hydrometallurgy, industrial, synthetic, computational chemistry, and learning and teaching. Some very broad areas of research include the development of: novel extractants for the mining industry; new separation media; and novel, improved and more efficient analytical analysis, separation and monitoring techniques, particularly for the solution to real world problems such as for counter-terrorism, environmental and pharmaceutical analysis. His research also investigates the fundamental mechanisms of chromatographic separations, and the development of simulation and training programs. He is interested in the development of CAI and Internet Tuition packages, and the implementation of more flexible teaching methods.
