Biography

After completing a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from the prestigious Dharmsinh Desai Institute of Technology (DDIT, India) in 2003, Dr Garaniya worked in industry for a few years. Subsequently in 2005 he obtained a Master of Engineering Science from the University of New South Wales (UNSW). In 2010, he obtained a PhD in Engineering from UTAS, and took up a full-time position at UTAS, where he has played a major role in teaching and research at AMC. Along with course coordination and unit coordination (between 2011–16), he has taught many different subjects at various levels. Recently some of his administrative duties have increased.

During the first three years (2010–12) of his academic career, he was a more teaching-focused academic and spent time developing teaching materials for existing and new units. He reviewed and designed a Bachelor of Engineering (Marine and Offshore Engineering) course, including development of course learning outcomes and subsequently aligned all units with these course learning outcomes. Over time, this course rationalisation along with other long-term strategies has resulted in an increase in course enrolment. He was awarded two Teaching Merit Certificates for his excellence in teaching. During this time, he expanded his research on coastal environmental pollution, with a focus on air emissions due to coastal shipping activities.

In 2014, when Dr Rouzbeh Abbassi joined UTAS, they established and developed a multi-disciplinary research group called the ‘Environment, Energy and Safety (EES)’ Engineering Group. This group focuses on generating new knowledge to solve complex problems related to environmental, safety, risk and risk engineering. His major contributions to the EES Engineering Group is research on coastal environmental issues, including impacts of activities on air and water pollution. This group currently has six Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students and has supported six PhD completions. Over the past four years, the EES Engineering Group has also published 60 peer-reviewed publications, as well as secured many competitive grants in partnership with both industry and academic institutions. The EES Engineering Group showcases a collaborative and supportive research culture. The steady growth and excellent research output assured UTAS provided funding for development of an Environmental Laboratory and purchase of necessary high-tech instruments. The new laboratory is fully functional and currently used by PhD and Honours students. The group also received a seed funding grant ($39,740) from the Tasmanian Community Fund (TCF) to investigate ‘Sustainable Bioelectricity Generation from Dairy Wastewater’. The project involves investigations regarding the technological advancement of CWs and additional functionality, along with efficient wastewater treatment.

He has developed close working relationships with colleagues from the Memorial University of Newfoundland (Canada), Delft University of Technology (Netherlands), Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Maine Maritime Academy (United States of America), Aalto University (Finland), and the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR)-Institute of Minerals and Materials Technology (India). Other industry collaborations include INCAT Tasmania, DNV-GL, Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA), TasWater, CSL Australia Ltd, and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).

In addition, he has also developed healthy relationships and collaborations with colleagues within UTAS. These collaborations have led to successful research grants, as well as provided an opportunity for solving multi-disciplinary problems and issues as they have arisen in the workplace.

Awards

Based on his outstanding research performance during the last four years, he received nominations for the UTAS College of Sciences and Engineering Executive Dean’s Research Award and twice for the UTAS Vice Chancellor’s Research Excellence Award during this period.

Current projects

Since joining UTAS as staff, he has secured research funding in various areas. In addition to fulfilling his substantial teaching duties at the beginning of his tenure, he was also successful in obtaining competitive internal grants. In 2014, he was successful in receiving a grant from AMSA. He provided thorough research analysis to AMSA on various regulatory options for voting at the International Maritime Organisation’s Marine Environment Protection Committee Meeting. His report recommended that Australia vote in favour of reducing the sulphur content of marine fuel oil from a maximum of 3.5% by mass to a 0.5% limit. AMSA, a member of the International Maritime Organisation, voted in line with this recommendation at the meeting in 2014. The proposal was carried, and the new limit will apply from 1 January 2020.

He has always maintained considerable breadth in his research, applying engineering expertise to interdisciplinary problems, in collaboration with UTAS faculties and institutes. He was a member of a cross-disciplinary team, which successfully achieved a $204,000 grant for a ‘Sense-T’ project in 2015. The team undertook complex data analysis in this project to develop a risk analysis tool, which can be used for predicting river water temperature based on weather data.

In addition, he led a $70,803 (plus $10,000 in internal funding and $10,000 from QUT) project funded by the International Association of Maritime Universities (IAMU) and the Nippon Foundation in Japan. This was a collaborative project with QUT Brisbane and the Maine Maritime Academy in the United States of America. In this project the team collected emission samples when ships were in port, and also whilst cruising. Since the work was carried out within the restricted port boundary, it required a high level of negotiation and coordination with the stakeholders. He led the team of academics and HDRs from QUT and UTAS in obtaining a number of approvals. These included Maritime Security Identification Cards (MSIC), Port of Brisbane approval, Maritime Safety Queensland approval and approvals from vessel owner/operators. The research team successfully completed the project and published in high quality journals.

In addition, he has successfully supervised 24 Honours students. This has included not only assisting them with research direction and techniques, but also teaching them academic writing, preparation of presentations, and correct formatting of a thesis. In 2013, he brought a $3.9 million donation of software from Schlumberger to UTAS for the use of Honours students. he co-supervised a student who successfully utilised this software and published a journal article. His great success also led him to a job with Schlumberger. This is just one example of him providing students with an effective learning experience through high quality academic guidance. These attributes greatly improve their employment prospects in a competitive global environment.

In a very short time, the EES Engineering Group has organised two symposiums, including one on wastewater treatment (http://www.amc.edu.au/about-amc/news-and-events/news-items/showcasing-renewable-technologies-for-wastewater-treatment). This symposium attracted 35 academics and/or industry experts from Tasmania and mainland Australia.

Bioelectricity Generation from Dairy Wastewater (2016)$39,740
Description
The main objective of this study is to develop a novel low-cost fuel cell for simultaneous contaminants removal and electricity generation from dairy wastewater. The dairy industry including dairy firms and dairy processing plants is Australias fourth largest rural industry. In 2014-2015, Tasmanian milk production reached a record 886 million litres, a 10.1% increase over the previous year. That is a rise of 286ML in 10 years. The dairy wastewater which includes dung, urine, milk residue, and detergents is collected at one point near the farm and requires effective management to prevent environment pollution. The wastewater should be managed in a manner that does not pollute surface or ground waters or create undue odour. Constructed Wetlands (CW) are known as one the best management practice to treat dairy wastewaters. A plant based flooded systems such as constructed wetlands commonly used in dairy industry have different aerobic and anaerobic zones throughout their bed depth and water column (Yadav et al., 2012). Therefore this similarity can be utilised for the development of a novel plant based MFC. In the combined novel MFC-CW system, the electrochemical active microbes (bacteria) act as biocatalysts. The bacteria uses the anode electrode as the preferred final electrode acceptor because the deference in free energy is larger than other available electron acceptors. In this way, the electrical current is generated simultaneously with contaminants removal from wastewater.

Sense-T Stage 2: Adaptive Water Resources Management (Stage 2) (2015 - 2016)$204,000
Description
Stage 1 of the Sense-T Adaptive Water Resources Management Project (2013-2015) developed ways to apply sensor technologies for enabling improved water management in two Tasmanian irrigation catchments. Key findings that inform the scope and objectives of this Stage 2 application: 1) Current infrastructure and targeted new sensor deployment enabled improved low-flow modelling and prediction of water availability in relation to critical environmental thresholds. 2) This new level of situational awareness enabled irrigation communities to engage in more contemporary adaptive co-management, particularly at critical production times coinciding with low flows. This project will continue to refine the technology developed in Stage 1, and expand its scope to a larger more complex catchment.

Development of a Methodology to Measure and Assess Ship Emissions (2015)$70,803
Description
Exhaust emissions from ships are one of the major sources of air pollutants. While gaseous emissions have been extensively studies over several decades, diesel particulate emissions of PM2.5 and sub-micron nano-particles have recently emerged as a major health issue. Based on sufficient evidence in 2012 the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which is part of the World Health Organization {WHO), classified diesel engine exhaust as carcinogenic to humans (Group 1, same as asbestos). This research proposal focuses on maritime environmental protection under the regulatory compliance of IMO MAR POL Annex VI addressing ship emission (SOx, NOx and PM2.S). These regulated pollutants and the hundreds of other constituents of exhaust emissions generated by the combustion of fuels depend on the quality of the fuel and the characteristics of combustion.Therefore, Australia Maritime College (AMC) in collaboration with Queensland University of technology (QUT) and Maine Maritime Academy (MMA)propose a study to develop in-vessel emission measurement systems and emissions evaluation protocols to aid the industry in the characterisation of fuel emissions emitted in at-sea conditions.The research program comprises of three main objectives:Demonstrate real time in-vessel continuous emissions measurements (CEMS) of Particulate Matter (PM) and NOxmeasurements using portable gas instrumentation and scanning mobility particle sizers (SMPS), including PM size distributionsDevelop relationship between fuel quality and emissions from ships operating in different conditions (fuel, operation, enginetype, engine size, region, etc.)Develop a model for an emission factor estimation method and informed decision making framework for ships operating indifferent conditions (fuel, operation, engine type, engine size, region.The research will provide a novel methodology/model for emission factor (EF) estimation method and a "Green Ship Index"-a scale for categorizingenergy efficient ships in t erms emission factors regulatory compliance.
