Carlo Harvey is a Senior Lecturer in Computer Games Technology at Birmingham City University, in the School of Computing and Digital Technology. He teaches C++ for Games and Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning.
He was previously the programme leader for the Games Programming course in the Creative Technologies department of the Faculty of Science and Technology at Bournemouth University. He oversaw the development of the BSc Games Programming course into the redesigned BSc Games Software Engineering. This process was approved by both an internal and external panel, by the Academic Quality team and by the Faculty Academic Standard Committee. He also undertook the role of Unit of Assessment 11 Impact Champion, overseeing the development of case studies being prepared for the Research Excellence Framework 2021 submission process.
Prior to this, Carlo worked with Jaguar Land Rover on an EPSRC funded research proposal, Program for Simulation Innovation (Psi: Theme 7). This project aimed to drive digital prototyping forward for the next generation. His work on this project included visualisation and sound-field manipulation for virtual vehicles. This utilised and integrated a wide variety of technology into one holistic demonstrator.
He completed a PhD in Computer Science at the University of Warwick in 2012. This was entitled Modality Based Perception for Selective Rendering and considered user study evaluated techniques to speed up image synthesis, taking advantage of perceptual artifacts of cross-modal attention under different sensory systems. He has a BSc (Hons) Computer Science from Bristol University (2007) and a Postgraduate Certificate in Academic and Professional Practice from the University of Warwick (2016).
Carlo has published in the fields of perception-aware rendering, simulation, auditory perception, multi-sensory perceptual impact on vision and cultural heritage. He has a number of Q1 journal publications and has won numerous best technical/application and student paper awards at international conferences.
