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. His research interests 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 also 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. Movania 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. Movania is currently serving as an Assistant Professor at DHA Suffa University, Karachi, Pakistan.
