Dr. Livingstone teaches courses on programming and data science.
Dr. Livingstone's research explores the use of affective technology to facilitate human-computer interaction. By combining computational methods with experimental psychology, he seeks to develop affective technologies that can recognize, interpret, predict, and express emotion. Dr. Livingstone is also interested in the application of affective technology in the rehabilitation of facial and vocal deficits in neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's disease.
