Jonas Latt

Senior Lecturer


Jonas Latt is Associate Professor in the computer science department of the University of Geneva (UNIGE). He obtained his PhD degree on the topic of lattice Boltzmann modeling of fluid flow at the University of Geneva, Switzerland, in 2007, and since then pursued his academic career at Tufts University (Boston, USA), the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne EPFL (Switzerland), and the UNIGE. His research focuses on computational fluid dynamics, cross-disciplinary modeling of complex systems, and high-performance computing. He is the original developer of the open-source software Palabos (, a parallel lattice Boltzmann modeling tool which is widely used in the community.
