Dr. Muhammad Mobeen Movania

Dr. Muhammad Mobeen Movania received his PhD degree in Advance Computer Graphics and Visualization from Nanyang Technological Unviversity (NTU), Singapore. After his graduation, he joined as a research scientist at the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R), a division of A-Star Singapore. His responsibilities there were research and development in the areas of computer graphics and animation. Before joining NTU, he was a junior graphics programmer at Data Communication and Control (DCC) Pvt. Ltd., Karachi, Pakistan. He was working on DirectX and OpenGL API for producing real-time interactive tactical simulators and dynamic integrated training simulators.

Dr. Mobeen’s research interests span around real-time computer graphics and visualization. The research areas include GPU-based volumetric rendering techniques, GPU technologies, real-time soft body physics, real-time dynamic shadows, real-time collision detection and response, and hierarchical geometric data structures. He is the author of the OpenCloth project (http://code.google.com/p/opencloth), which implements various cloth simulation algorithms in OpenGL. His blog (http://mmmovania.blogspot.com) lists a lot of useful graphics tips/tricks and is being frequented by a lot of computer graphics enthusiasts. Dr. Mobeen has published several international conference and journal papers in the area of computer graphics and visualization including a poster at SIGGRAPH 2013. He has written a book (OpenGL Development Cookbook published by Packt Publishing) which details several applied recipes on using modern OpenGL. He has also authored a book chapter in (OpenGL Insights published by AK Peters/CRC Press). He has served as a reviewer for several recent books on OpenGL and OpenGL ES. Dr. Mobeen is currently serving as an Assistant Professor at DHA Suffa University Karachi.
