Biography

Moneer Eman

My name is Moneer Eman and I am a PhD student from Abha, Saudi Arabia. I received a B.E. degree in Physics from King Abdulaziz University in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia in 2003 and a M.S. degree in Astrophysics from the University of Alabama in Huntsville, USA in 2010. In 2011, I joined the Department of Physics in Princess Nora bint Abdul Rahman University in Riyadh, as a Lecturer. In 2014 I joined the University of Leicester to complete my PhD. My current research is in Gamma-ray Bursts; GRBs are the most powerful sources of energy known in the Universe. Long-duration GRBs are thought to be due to the collapse of a single, massive star, while short-duration GRBs may arise from the merger of two compact objects, probably neutron stars. Both scenarios lead to an accreting black hole or neutron star which powers relativistic jets which are copious emitters of synchrotron radiation. The observational data obtained with X-ray and gamma-ray telescopes on the NASA Swift and Fermi satellites.
