Synergy of great young scientist I work with, collaborate and good friends. All member of other teams with their respective Professor (Germany and Switzerland). I mostly play the role of “sub-supervisor” and problem solver.




Miglė Graužinytė (PhD student, Prof. Goedecker)

Originally from Lithuania, she completed her undergraduate and Master studies in Physics at the University of Edinburgh. Her research focuses on computational modelling of defects in oxides. She collaborates actively with experimental groups and is especially interested in programming and teaching. In her spare time she enjoys equally indoor/outdoor sports and pubs.





Deb Sankar De (PhD student, Prof. Goedecker)

is from India (Krishnagar W.B.) and completed undergrad Krishnagar and master at Jawaharlal Nehru University (J.N.U) New Delhi. After doing an internship in Germany decided to pursuit PhD in Europe.  Deb palette’s of modelling  is rich, it uses density-functional theory to simulate big systems (hundreds of atoms). His interests is in clusters, fullerenes,  reconstruction of 2D layers, bulks oxides, etc.  Outside of university,  Deb enjoys walks, dark-philosophy (is a keen pessimist) and enjoys equally, good and bad wine.




Matheus Rodriguez Alvarez (PhD student, Prof. Marques)

Born in Colombia. He finished his undergraduate in Chemistry at Universidad Distrital in Bogotá. After working as chemistry teacher he did his master in Chemistry at Universidad Nacional de Colombia. Currently he is doing his PhD in Physics at Marthin-Luther University in Germany. Matheus works on structural prediction and materials design with high throughput and optimization methods applied to superconductors. In his spare time he enjoys good latin-american music, German beer and visiting friends.





José A. Flores Livas is doing his second Post-doc at the Theoretical Department of the University of Basel (Switzerland). First Post-Doc was at the Max-Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics (Germany).  He received his PhD. in Physics at Université de Lyon 1 (France) and undergrad and master studies in Physics at Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon (Mexico).

About me

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 …
