"A DESIGNER IS A PLANNER WITH AN AESTHETIC SENSE." — EINSTIEN
Jason Kerestes is a roboticist and mechanical engineer based in Charleston, South Carolina. He received his bachelors of science in mechanical engineering from Arizona State University, and his masters of mechanical engineering from the same university in 2014. In 2012, he started developing robotic exoskeletons for DARPA, becoming one of the only researchers in America to officially augment human locomotion for high speed running.
Since then, his creations of exoskeletons and jetpacks have been published in Wired, Sports Illustrated, Popular Science, Hackaday, Ripley’s believe it or not, and The Washington Times. He has appeared on Discovery Channel, Fox News, CNN, The Today Show, CBS, Tech Toys 360, and NPR.
His goal is to make science and engineering not only interesting and rewarding, but entertaining as well and help drive future generations towards Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
Recently, Jason has been involved in filming for entertainment television on the hit show "Myth busters: The Search". He is also working on developing new shows that bring science and engineering to the public in fun exciting new media formats.
In addition to engineering, science, robotics, and television, Jason is an focused on improving the environment and spends time leading volunteer beach cleanup gatherings as well as developing low tech engineering solutions for humanitarian efforts such as water filtration.
Jason is also a Robotic Engineer with The Boeing Co.
