Jeff Lieberman (born March 1978) is the host of the show Time Warp on Discovery Channel.
Lieberman, originally from Florida, holds two B.S. degrees, in Mathematics and Physics, and two M.S. degrees, in Mechanical Engineering and Media Arts & Sciences with a focus in Robotics, all from MIT. He is currently taking a leave of absence from pursuing a Ph.D due to the demands of filming. Before his leave, he worked in the MIT Media Lab in Cynthia Breazeal's Personal Robots Group.
One of his main interests is making kinetic sculptures. With Daniel Paluska he built the "Absolut Quartet", a music machine which is currently on display at Ars Electronica in Austria.
He has since then made many technological sculptures, which resulted in him starting his design firm Plebian Design. He also did a project on the crowd funding site KickStarter. "One thing that I don’t want to do as an artist is inflate the prices of my work to artificially make them more valuable. Often artists do this in order to make a living; so I wanted to figure out another alternative." he said, explaining why he chose KickStarter for one of his projects.
Lieberman is also a musician, playing several instruments as well as singing. His first starring role in a feature film was in the romantic musical comedy "83 Errers"
