Steven R. Livingstone (2016-01-24)
Dr. Steven R. Livingstone, Ph.D. is an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin, River Falls, in the department of Computer Science and Information Systems. He received his Bachelors’ degrees in Physics, Information Technology, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from The University of Queensland. He completed post-doctoral training in psychology at McGill University, where he was a recipient of the prestigious Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience NSERC award, before moving to Ryerson University as a recipient of the SSHRC Advancing Interdisciplinary Research in Singing (AIRS) award. He then took up a fellowship position at McMaster University, as part of the McMaster Institute for Music and the Mind. He has published 28 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, including seminal work on the role of head movements in emotional communication during speech.
His research examines the physiological nature of emotion. By combining computational techniques with experimental psychology, he seek to understand the physical and perceptual bases of emotion. From these insights, he seeks to develop new techniques and technologies that can recognize, predict, and express emotion. I am also interested in the application of affective technology in the rehabilitation of facial and vocal deficits in neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease.
