My name is Jakob van den Eijnden, I am a Lee Hysan Junior Research Fellow at St. Hilda's College and postdoctoral researcher at the astrophysics sub-department of the University of Oxford. My work focuses on multi-wavelength observation of various types of accreting neutron stars. I focus particularly on radio observations, for instance as part of the ThunderKAT Large Survey Program with the MeerKAT radio telescope. My research largely focuses on the connection between the accretion flow and outflows (jets and disk winds) in X-ray binaries, in particular in systems hosting a strongly-magnetized neutron star and/or a massive donor star. Before moving to Oxford, I completed my PhD at the University of Amsterdam (2020).
