I have just been awarded an NWO Vidi fellowship to stay in the Netherlands for another 5 years. I will most probably bring this grant to the Leiden Observatory. I will build a group there and my starting funds will let me hire one Ph.D. student and one postdoc. Exciting times ahead!
Here you find some press coverage of the event:
Alessandro Patruno is a researcher at the Leiden University working in the field of compact objects (neutron stars, black holes and white dwarfs) and high energy astrophysics. In his blog Astrosplash Alessandro discusses news in his research field and posts updates on his work.
