Martijn Constant van Beurden completed secondary school in 1992 at the Zwijsen College in Veghel and he started as a student in Electrical Engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology. From February until September 1997, he performed his graduation project on the numerical modeling of array antennas at Hollandse Signaal Apparaten (currently Thales Nederland) to obtain the M.Sc. Degree (cum laude). He won the second prize of the IEEE Region 8 student paper contest and was awarded the C.I.V.I. prize for electrical engineering, both for his M.Sc. thesis.   In October 1997, he started Ph.D. research at the Eindhoven University of Technology, under the supervision of prof. A.G. Tijhuis and prof. A.P.M. Zwamborn. From January until June 2000, he conducted research on the optimization of wire antennas at the Mathematics Department of the University of Dundee, under the supervision of prof. P.D. Smith and prof. R. Fletcher. In September 2000, he was appointed Assistant Professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology. He received the Ph.D. degree (cum laude) in September 2003 from Eindhoven University of Technology. In May 2004 he received the ASML prize for the best PhD thesis in applied research in 2003 from Eindhoven University of Technology. Since January 2012, he is appointed as Associate Professor in the Electromagnetics group.

Current projects involve among others, forward and inverse scattering for periodic structures and finitely repetitive structures in layered media, modeling of electromagnetic fields in configurations with a stochastic or uncertain nature, design and optimization of antennas.  

His research interests are fast modeling techniques, integral equations, functional analysis with respect to electromagnetic field problems, inverse scattering, nonlinear optimization.

Teaching activities: Applied Natural Sciences, a general first-year course on physics, Numerical methods for Electrical Engineers, Advanced Electromagnetics and Moment Methods, Electromagnetic Engineering.
