Jordy Davelaar joined the Flatiron Institute in 2023 as a Flatiron Research Fellow.

Jordy completed a Ph.D. in astronomy from Radboud University Nijmegen in the Netherlands in 2020. In 2019 he participated in a half-year pre-doctoral program at the Flatiron Institute. Davelaar is currently a joint postdoctoral fellow at Flatiron Institute and Columbia University. His research interests are in topics in high energy astrophysics, including black holes, accretion, jet formation and propagation, plasma physics and binary black holes.

Davelaar is a member of the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration where he is involved in theoretical modeling of the primary EHT sources with a main interest in non-thermal particle acceleration. He also recently joined LISA as an associate member, where he works on identifying from theory tell-tale electromagnetic signatures that could provide evidence of massive black hole binaries.
