About me

 

Hi there, my name is José A. Flores Livas, I am doing my second Post-doc at the Theoretical Department of the University of Basel (Switzerland). My first Post-Doc was at the Max-Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics (Germany). I received my PhD. in Physics at Université de Lyon 1 (France) and my undergrad studies in Physics at Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon (Mexico).

 

About me: I’m originally from north of Mexico (pretty much a desert over there) the state of Coahuila (“place of flying serpent”). In Europe I enjoy the diversity of weathers, cultures, and languages;  take advantage of everything that is related to cold, rain, mountains, threes and snow. My camera rarely leaves my side. Well to be honest I only enjoy rain when is in the desert, and cold when there is a lot of snow or a good warm-wine at hand.

Passionate for good food (thanks to my Italian and French friends). as well as enjoying cooking.  I am fluent in French, Italian, Spanish, and my skills in Schwiiizerdütsch started to overpass the German one.  My hobbies are among others:  biking, climbing and take care of plants, collect and growth plants and flowers (from dahlia  to the most exotic cactaceae). I am passionate of rock climbing and mountain sports. This picture was taken when free climbed the second longest sport climbing route in America, 23 pitches with 600 meters. Took me more than 8 hours up and other 3 and half going down.
