Gregory Whiting, PhDAssociate Professor and PI at University of Colorado Boulder
Greg joined the University of Colorado Boulder in 2017 and is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, a member of the Materials Science and Engineering Program, and the Principal Investigation for the Boulder Experimental Electronics and Manufacturing (BEEM) Lab. His research is focused at the intersection of additive manufacturing, novel materials, and functional devices. Greg is primarily interested in using printing as a method to fabricate unconventional electronic components and systems that can be readily customized, mechanically flexible/conformable, large area, widely distributed, biocompatible, and/or controllably transient. The BEEM Lab is currently investigating the use of such devices in applications including agriculture, environmental monitoring, robotics, assistive technologies, off-planet manufacturing, and energy generation.
Prior to joining the faculty at CU Boulder Greg was a member of the Rapid Evaluation Team at Google[X] where he carried out early stage scientific assessment in a wide range of areas in order to develop a pipeline of potential large-scale projects for Alphabet/X that address high impact problems. Before X he spent 8 years at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), where he managed the Novel Electronics Group, researching printed, flexible and transient electronic systems. Greg completed a PhD at the University of Cambridge and a BS from the University of California Berkeley.
