Dr Dennis Visentin has 20 years experience in tertiary education in a number of schools at the University of Tasmania and the Australian Maritime College (AMC). He has taught in different areas including applied physics, electronics, engineering, medical radiation science, statistics and biomechanics. Dr Visentin's current role is degree coordinator of the Medical Radiation Science degree.
Dr Visentin holds a PhD in physics where he demonstrated the feasibility of a novel controlled fusion reactor by generating a mathematic model and simulation of the reactor. He has been involved in projects in a number of areas including modelling and simulation. In the School of Health Sciences he has developed curricula for Medical Imaging, Nuclear Medicine and Radiation Therapy as well as Biomechanics.
Dr Visentin has a current science radio segment on ABC local radio with Dominic Geraghty answering listeners science questions.
Dr Visentin is the Degree Coordinator for the Bachelor of Health Science/Medical Radiation Science and is the unit coordinator for Medical Radiation Fundamentals (CXA200), Medical Radiation Instrumentation (CXA202), Health: Determinants and Analysis (CXA103), Medical Radiation Science (CXA201), and Physics for Health Sciences (CXA115).
He also has experience in curriculum design, and teaching using computing resources including simulation and has a particular interest in improving numeracy in undergraduate students.
