Vishal Patil is currently a Stanford Science Fellow at Stanford University. Incorporating ideas from mathematics to biology, his work aims to understand how topology and geometry can be used to organize and control soft matter systems. His current research at Stanford concerns adaptive, heterogeneous metamaterials, with a focus on understanding their capacity to exhibit self-learning behavior.
