“My wife took this pic”

Hello, I’m Alvaro Antonio,

 I live in Luxembourg.  I graduated in electronics at Uninorte (Barranquillla-Colombia) and self-taught in many other areas like thermochemistry modelling and Additive Manufacturing. Even though my specialization was in automatics, I decided to master sustainable development and I’ve done my  PhD in material sciences. I’m currently employed at the University of Luxembourg. I love to cook and I am fascinated by discovering new tastes. I spent some years in Paris, where I held down many cool-bar jobs. My nickname is Toño. I like donkeys (don’t ask why).  I love travelling with my cheerful, beautiful and lovely wife Diana. I’ve slept in the Sahara desert. I’ve swum with wild dolphins. I’ve surfed close to a shark. I’m afraid of heights, but yet I’ve bungee jumped, I’ve stood at the edge of the grand canyon and I went to the “top of the world”. I spent 4 wonderful months in India.  I’ve volunteered as a science teacher in an orphelinat. I like taking pictures. I believe in Santa Claus. I love the three Js. My first video-console was an Atari 2600 with a hell of embedded games. I can barely speak Spanish and I believe I can speak English, French and I’m learning German. I used to play Basketball for my university, currently, I don’t play often but I have nice basketball shoes. I don’t like going to the gym, but my wife wants to keep me alive for longer. I like rock music, nevertheless I enjoy folk-dances. I saw a wild Lioness eating a Zebra. I previously held many independent technical jobs in electronics and IT. My first experience as an employee was in a waste-disposal company and I came back to it after graduation. I run under Linux, but I recognise that Windows has some advantages. I have predicted “brain thoughts”. I’m learning about Chemical Vapour Transport but also how to play the guitar. I have spent the last 10 years promoting, researching, loving, hating and trying to find renewable energies.

I invite you to find more about me, my interests and research on this website!
