Title: Biodegradable printed sensors for monitoring soil conditions11.2 Whiting
Gregory Whiting is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU). His research is at the intersection of additive manufacturing, novel materials, and functional devices, and is primarily focused on the use of 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. These devices can find application in areas including medicine, structural and environmental monitoring, agriculture, robotics, energy generation and storage, assistive technologies, and data security and waste reduction. Prior to joining the University of Colorado in 2017, Greg worked in industrial research, including for Cambridge Display Technology (CDT), the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), and Google[X]. He received a PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2007 and a BS from the University of California, Berkeley in 2002.
