Luke.Mirowski@utas.edu.au

Dr Mirowski is a research fellow who has significant applied research with Australian primary industry supply chain partners. He has held the position of Research Fellow for approximately 4 years since the completion of his PhD, in August 2011. In this time, Dr Mirowski has made broad ranging contributions to the field of supply chains and logistics at the discipline level and within several applied domains. His initial work with the University of Tasmania (UTas) eLogistics Research Group (eLRG) led to his involvement with forestry transport projects for the Cooperative Research Centre for Forestry (CRCF), and a joint appointment as an associate research fellow of the Australian Forest Operations Research Alliance (AFORA) at University of Sunshine Coast (USC).

Biography

Dr Mirowski's collaborations across both UTAS and USC provide him ongoing access to leading facilities and expertise. Leveraging his academic and industry relationships, he has raised over $800K+ in research funds. His research has led to operational logistics systems for Australia's leading forestry, timber, beef, trucking, and seafood companies; presentations directly to industry stakeholders (FWPA Roadshow; Precision Forestry in Advance); and high quality (ARC A-ranked) journal publications (Biomass, Ecotoxicology, Ubiquitous Computing). Dr Mirowski currently holds research fellow appointments with three national research groups: eLRG, AFORA, and the Centre for Sustainable Architecture with Wood (CSAW). He also provides research support to the ARC funded Industrial Transformation Research Hub (ITRH) project entitled, 'Pathways to Market.'

Pinot Noir provenance: Australian benchmarking to support growing, making, perception of quality, and marketing to add value to the Pinot Noir supply chain (2016 - 2019)$652,694
Description
: 1/ To establish an evidence base to support claims of Australian Pinot Noirs as distinctive, unique and of high quality. Evidence will be a mix of data on unique terroir (site, climate, soil), viticultural practices, winemaking practices, impact compounds and commentary from Pinot Noir specialists. 2/ To clearly establish fine Australian Pinot Noir as distinctive in the minds of international Pinot Noir commentators/MWs, and generate clear descriptors of Australian Pinot Noir styles and rationality compared with international exemplars. 3/ To progress identification of impact compounds for Pinot Noir, and develop rapid, practicable analytical methods for those compounds with potential for industry uptake. 4/ To identify and articulate the key supply chain points where the quality, unique character and sustainability of Australian Pinot Noir can be documented and optimised, and evidence to explain provenance can be gathered.

Fermen Tasmania: tracking the initiation, uptake and implementation of a Tasmania food futures vision (2016)$6,974
Description
Our project will use several research techniques and interdisciplinary perspectives to track and document the detail of how FermenTasmania (FT) emerged and has diffused, both as an overall concept and as a set of new fermentation business ideas and practices in a supply chain. FT - as a distinctive new idea - provides a rare opportunity to research in real-time the detail of how innovations initiate, coalesce and develop during their early stages. To explore this topic we will utilitise the full breadth of our teams interdisciplinary expertise in wine science and transdisciplinary research (Carew - TIA), horizontal business networks in the wine industry (Lewis Business), processes of policy and technology change (Lovell Social Sciences) and quantitative analysis of logistics, supply chains, data and information flows (Turner/Mirowski Engineering & ICT). This project will provide an important opportunity to develop and fine-tune our interdisciplinary collaboration and application of methods, including discourse analysis, science and technology studies ethnographies, social media network mapping, and interaction mapping.

Sense-T Stage 2: Forest and Wood Products (2015 - 2016)$408,079
Description
The proposed project aligns with initiatives led by the National Centre for Future Forestry Industries (NCFFI -‐UTas) in the optimisation of extended forestry value chains. Specifically this project aims to improve the recovery, quality and value of sawn hardwoods by deploying advanced information sensing and modeling technology to air-‐dry sawn boards to Fibre Saturation Point (FSP). This is the critical stage in successful hardwood drying, and a vital segment of the broader forestry value chain. This is a three-‐stage project support by four activity streams. The three stages are 1). Intensive research into sensing, 2). Pilot industry scale sensing and operational trials, and 3). Industry operational trials. The four activity streams are a). Sensor system development that will determine the number and efficacy of sensors operating at a yard, stack and board scales, b).Drying condition model development that will align the information collected with the observed drying behaviour and the potential for whole-‐of-‐site timber management, c). Industry process integration that will ensure technical outcomes can be implemented given industrys current operational capacity, and d). Project 4 management.
