Daniel-Alin Loghin

Senior graphics engineer

Veteran graphics engineer with over 7 years experience in the field, specialized in Realtime Computer Graphics and also a hobbyist 3D artist.

This is me

Though I have worked on various desktop, mobile and embedded automotive projects using different tools and technologies (Unreal Engine, Unity, OpenGL ES, GLSL, Direct3D, HLSL), I always tried to push the limits of the hardware and software available and exceed expectations. Each project had its unique combination of challenges, whether it was complex mathematics and spatial algorithms, advanced data structures or low level programming, but with a common goal: high performance rendering and cross platform usability.

I have also coordinated and developed a team of a dozen skilled graphics engineers, guiding them from a technical perspective to overcome engineering challenges and to attain our goals.

My passion has always been computer graphics, having started from a young age with modeling and game mods, this makes me to constantly learn and stay up to date with the latest technologies and advances in this field.
