About Me

My name is Lucas Flores and I am pursuing my PhD at the University of Pennsylvania. My PhD work is in experimental high energy elementary particle physics, working on the ATLAS experiment located along the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN (an international nuclear/accelerator research facility in Geneva, Switzerland). When I am not doing physics you can find me hiking, taking photos, working on my fitness, snowboarding, and taking a boat out on lake Geneva.
