Welcome to the homepage of Prof. Samar Safi-Harb, Canada Research Chair in Supernova (Remnants) Astrophysics, in the department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada. Our research focuses on high-energy studies of the remnants of supernova explosions, namely neutron stars and supernova remnants.

Shown here are images of remnants seen with NASA's Chandra X-ray observatory.

Our research is mainly funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada, the Canada Research Chairs program, the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), the Canadian Space Agency, and the Canadian Institute for Theoretrical Astrophysics. Additional local funds have been provided by MITACS, the University of Manitoba and the Manitoba Research and Innovation Fund.
