Hersch Nathan: Engineer, Puppeteer, and Maker
Who am I?
I am an Undergraduate Researcher attending the University of Kentucky pursuing Electrical Engineering and Theatre Arts degrees. My focus areas and research interests are Control Systems, Robotics, and Wireless Communications with applications in aerospace and puppetry.
From a young age I was enthralled with puppetry and computers. The first interest lead me to apprenticing at Peewinkle's Puppets' in their Puppeteers in Progress (PIP) program. Puppetry got me involved in technical theatre in Indianapolis and in combination with my interest in technology I became passionate about making that included working with electronics.
