  • DPhil in Mathematics, Oxford, 1999
  • BSc (Hons) in Mathematics, Bristol, 1996


After finishing his undergraduate studies in mathematics at the University of Bristol in 1996, Daniel Loghin went on to Oxford to carry out research in computational methods for partial differential equations as part of a 4-year DPhil programme sponsored by the EPSRC and British Energy plc. He spent a further three years in Oxford funded by an EPSRC grant to work on a research programme on fast solvers for CFD. Daniel later joined the Parallel Algorithms Group at the European Research Centre in Scientific Computing (CERFACS) in Toulouse where he continued work on a range of research themes in numerical analysis and scientific computing.

In 2006 Daniel Loghin joined the School of Mathematics at the University of Birmingham where he is currently Associate Professor in Applied Mathematics.
