I am currently a postdoc at the Institute for Astro- and Particle Physics at the University of Innsbruck. I obtained my B.Sc. in applied physics in 2003 from the Jordan University of Science and Technology in Irbid, Jordan. As a member of Bonn Cologne Graduate School of Physics and Astronomy (BCGS), I obtained my M.Sc. in experimental physics in September 2010 from the University of Cologne, for which I was awarded the DAAD prize 2011 for excellent international students at German universities. By extending on my master thesis work on high resolution infrared studies of the central parsec of our galaxy, I continued toward my PhD degree which I finished at the end of 2014. My research is focused on investigating the Galactic Centre using infrared observations to study the stellar population and the diffuse emission associated with the Centre’s massive clusters. I am also part of ENGRAVE, an international collaboration dedicated to follow-up studies of electromagnetic counterparts of gravitational wave sources.
