Research Interests

​Additive and Digital Manufacturing, Printed and Flexible Electronics, Transient Electronics, Distributed Sensor Systems

Gregory Whiting's research is focused at the intersection of additive manufacturing, novel materials, and functional devices.  He is primarily interested in using printing as a method to fabricate unconventional electronic components and systems that can be readily customized, be mechanically flexible/conformable, large area, widely distributed, biocompatible, and/or controllably transient.

Societal impact

Through our research we are working to develop new ways of making things that enables more distributed methods of manufacturing and provides more pervasive functionality.  We are currently addressing applications in a wide range of fields including health care, agriculture, energy and space exploration.
