Dr Mike Simpson


My background is in Computer Science and Video Game Development. I worked for two years as a Game Programmer at a local studio, following a Masters in Computer Games Engineering. I then returned to Newcastle University to start a PhD, which involved developing and evaluating a real-time rail engineering simulation tool, based on software and development practices from the games industry. I'm currently a Research Software Developer in the Digital Institute and my research interests include using my skills (and video game technologies) for other applications, such as gamification in healthcare, virtual simulation and data visualisation.

Skills: Programming, 3d Graphics, Visualisation, Game Technologies, Simulation
