Patil earns recognition from Acoustical Society of America


Ganesh PatilMechanical engineering doctoral student Ganesh Patil is the first-place recipient of the Best Student Paper Award in Structural Acoustics and Vibration from the Acoustical Society of America.

The award recognized Patil’s presentation, titled "Three-dimensional periodic multifunctional lattice materials for simultaneous vibration isolation and heat conduction," and was presented at the ASA’s 2020 Acoustics Virtually Everywhere conference in December.  

Patil’s presentation was based on his work published last year in Advanced Engineering Materials. He is a student in Assistant Professor Katie Matlack’s research group, the Wave Propagation and Metamaterials Laboratory.  His current work is focused on studying the wave propagation through lattice metamaterials and how they can be manipulated for better structural performance.

Patil completed his B.Tech in 2014 and Licentiate Diploma in 2011 in mechanical engineering from VJTI, Mumbai, India. He worked as a CAE Engineer in the Bajaj Auto Limited R&D division (2014-2017) before joining MechSE’s graduate program in Fall 2017.
