Zur Person

Daniel Dworak is an pro­grammer and IT spe­cia­list which joins deve­lo­p­ment skills with Digital Huma­nities back­ground. He was involved as main pro­grammer in three-years trans­na­tional and inter­di­sci­pli­nary pro­ject, ‘Vir­tual Recon­struc­tions in Trans­na­tional Rese­arch Envi­ron­ments. The Portal: „Palaces and Parks in former East Prussia”’ funded by the Leibniz Asso­cia­tion. Mean­while, was employed at  the Justus Liebig Uni­ver­sity Giessen at the Centre for Media and Interactivity.

In 2018 he’s finished PhD “The com­pres­sion of large com­puter gra­phics data sets for inter­ac­tive Web app­li­ca­tions” which was awarded and high scored. He is an author of seven publi­ca­tions inclu­ding awarded “the best paper of the Digital Heri­tage con­fe­rence in Cyprus”. He deve­loped 3dPNG file format, methods and tech­ni­ques of enco­ding, sen­ding and deco­ding of opti­mized 3D data. The 3dPNG format was also imple­mented in the pro­ject I was involved in. He deve­loped the com­plete work­flow for mode­ling, auto­matic com­pres­sion, enco­ding, sto­ring, trans­fer­ring and deco­ding 3D geo­metry opti­mized for the Web.

Right now, he is also an entre­pre­neur in his own TheD­worak com­pany which coope­rates with GG Inter­na­tional and AI Mainz. The first one focuses on caring about the secu­rity and setup of ser­vers (backend) for world­wide com­pany. While the second one allows him to expand his expe­ri­ence in Vir­tual Rea­lity and Aug­mented Rea­lity (VRAR), espe­cially for Cul­tural Heritage.
