Frederick Livingston was born March 21, 1980 in Greensboro, North Carolina to Willie and Deborah Livingston. He received his Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC in 2003, where he graduated cum laude. He remained at North Carolina State University to study mechatronics, robotics, and control system with the Center of Robotics and Intelligent Machines under the direction of Dr. Edward Grant. As a graduate student, Frederick worked with Sandia National Laboratories in the advance manufacturing engineering science. His responsibilities included the development of meso-scale fixturing, assembly, and tooling. Frederick also worked closely with Flexcell International to develop a new biomedical instrument using feed-back pneumatic controls. Frederick plans to continue his educational experience and obtain a doctor of philosophy degree. Frederick would like to combine machine learning, machine vision, mechatronics, robotics, and control systems to develop cutting edge manufacturing processes.
