Distinguished Professor Anatoly Rozenfeld is the Director and founder of CMRP, and is world renowned for his research work on semiconductor radiation detectors and their application for mini- and micro- dosimetry in radiation therapy, radiation protection, nuclear medicine and space sciences.

He is a member of numerous editorial boards and international advisory committees on Solid State Dosimetry, Micro-dosimetry, IEEE Radiation Instrumentation Steering Committee, IEEE NPSS Transnational Committee and local committees, including the Australian National Hadron Therapy Steering Committee, Prostate Cancer Institute, Australian HEP Executive Board and NHMRC Academy.

He has also established a strong research programme on proton and heavy iontherapy in Australia. Professor Rozenfeld is the founder of the biennial international workshops on Mini –Micro-Nano- Dosimetry and its Applications, and Modern Technology for Prostate Cancer Treatment, and was President of the Solid State Dosimetry (SSD 16) international conference in 2010 and General Chair of IEEE NSS MIC 2018 in Sydney. He served as Vice –Chair and Chair of International Solid State Dosimetry Organization (ISSDO). He is currently a Member  of  ICRU of Microdosimetry Report Committee and Space Medicine Committee of Australian Space Agency.

The Medical Radiation Physics research and educational programmes developed by Professor Rozenfeld at CMRP were recently recognised as being “above world standard” by the Australian Research Council – Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) in 2015 and 2018.  

Moreover, Professor Rozenfeld has published more than 400 articles, 5 chapters in books, holds 19 granted patents, attracted more than $17M competitive grants , and also delivered many keynotes, invited talks and seminars around the world. He is recipient of 2014 UOW Vice Chancellor Excellence Awards for Researcher of the Year and Award for Outstanding Achievements in Research Commercialization.
