Van den Eijnden did his PhD research with Dr Nathalie Degenaar at the Anton Pannekoek Institute of the University of Amsterdam, conducting X-ray and radio studies of accreting neutron stars. Among many things, he published the first research on observations of jets of highly magnetic neutron stars. He was also involved in recent research on the black hole in the centre of the Milky Way.

The three finalists will present invited talks at the 19th HEAD meeting, after which the Dissertation Prize will be awarded. This meeting will be held 13-17 March at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA.
