Professor Dima Kamenetsky is a 'New Star' Professor in Earth Sciences, School of Earth Sciences and CODES (2010-2014). He received his BSc (Hons) from the Moscow State University in 1983, and PhD from the Vernadsky Institute of Geochemistry and Analytical Chemistry (Russian Academy of Sciences) in 1991. He was an ARC Australian Research Fellow (1999-2003) and ARC Professorial Research Fellow (2005-2009). In 2003 the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (Germany) awarded Dima the prestigious Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award and he was a Visiting Professor in the Max Planck Institute für Chemie (Mainz, Germany) in 2003-2004. The Faculty of Science, Engineering & Technology, University of Tasmania, awarded him the Dean's Research Excellence Award in 2008.
Dima has wide expertise in melt and fluid inclusion experimental and analytical studies, as well as in the interpretation of conventional petrological and geochemical data. Dima has become internationally recognised for his research and publications on the petrology and geochemistry of mantle-derived, primitive magmas in different geodynamic settings, application of melt inclusion studies to altered rocks from ophiolites, ancient volcanic belts and volcanogenic sediments, and origin and evolution of metal-bearing fluid phases during crystallisation of primitive to felsic magmas.
His research to date has resulted in:
