Whiting, Gregory Lewis Associate Professor


Research Areas research areas


research overview

  • Dr Whiting's research is focused at the intersection of additive manufacturing, novel materials, and functional devices. He uses printing as a method to fabricate unconventional electronic components and systems that can be readily customized, mechanically flexible and conformable, large area, widely distributed, biocompatible, and/or controllably transient. These devices can find application in a broad range of areas including health care, structural and environmental monitoring, robotics, autonomous design and prototyping, energy generation and storage, as well as waste reduction and data security.

selected publications


courses taught

  • MCEN 4085 - Mechanical Engineering Design Project 2
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Second part of a two-course capstone design experience in mechanical engineering. Includes refinement of prototype, design optimization, fabrication, testing, and evaluation. Students orally present the final design and prepare a written report and operation manual for the product. GEEN-BS and GEEN-BSEPL students are not required to complete MCEN 4026.
  • MCEN 5055 - Advanced Product Design
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Fall 2019
    Introduces engineering design and development of consumer products. Includes learning sketching, brainstorming, idea generation, design thinking, user-centered design, product requirements and specifications, product constraints, human factors, aesthetics, industrial design, intellectual property, concept prototyping, idea selection, tolerancing, cost estimating, design for assembly, and materials selection. Entails a semester-long team re-design of a consumer product.
