Jonas Zehnder

I am a PhD student at LIGUM at Université de Montréal. My research interests lie in computational design, animatronics and numerical simulation and optimization of solids as well as fluids. I investigate new design tools and new ways to apply machine learning to simulation and optimization. I received my Bachelor's and Master's degree in Computer science from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH Zürich).
