Welcome to my personal page! I am Alex Turpin, a Catalan Physicist born in Sabadell, very close to Barcelona.
I studied Physics at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (2006-2010) and then I got a MSc in Photonics by the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (2010-2011). After that I joined the Quantum and Atom Optics Group at the Autonomous University of Barcelona as a PhD student to investigate the fundamentals and applications of the conical refraction phenomenon, under the supervision of Prof. Jordi Mompart. After finishing my PhD on November 2015, I remained at the QAOS Group as a Postdoc. Since 2017 I am a Postdoc researcher at the Neural Circuits Max Planck Research Group at the Center of Advanced European Studies and Research -caesar- in Bonn, under the supervision of Dr. Johannes Seelig, working in multiphoton microscopy techniques with Drosophila Melanogaster.
