passPhotoJoséHi! my name is José A. Flores Livas, I am doing my second Post-doc at the Theoretical Department of the University of Basel (Basilea) in 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).


I’m originally from north of Mexico (pretty much a desert over there, on the state of Coahuila),  so I try to take advantage of everything in Europe that is related to rain, cold, mountains, threes and snow. My camera rarely leaves my side. Well to be honest I only enjoy the rain when is in the desert, not in Europe, and cold only when there is a lot of snow. I love good food and enjoy cooking, nearly everyday.
I am fluent in French, Italian, Spanish, and my skills in Schwiiizerdütsch started to overpass the German one.  My hobbies include plants and flowers (from the most simple lavender,  dalias,  to the most exotic cactaceae). I am passionate of climbing and mountain sports.
