Prof. RNDr, PhD, FRACI, MRSC, CChem
University of Tasmania, Australia
In his academic research career he held a position of a Senior Research Fellow at the School of Chemistry, University of Tasmania, where he was a founding member of the Australian Centre for Research on Separation Science (ACROSS).
Prof Macka’s research focus has been primarily in the separation methods in liquid phase, namely capillary electrophoresis and electromigration separation methods, and detection methods. During the last decade his research gradually broadened and developed a number of cross-disciplinary research elements.
Nowadays his primary research interests span across areas of miniaturized, portable and remote analysis, with emphasis on separation and detection science, and further include miniaturisation of analytical instrumentation, monolithic stationary phases, utilisations of LEDs and solid state light sources in chemistry, micro- and nanofluidics, computer-based modelling and dynamic fluidic simulations in chemistry, and history of science.
