Emmanouil (Manos) Zapartas

My name is Emmanouil Zapartas (people call me Manos). I am a PhD student at the Anton Pannekoek Institute for Astronomy at the University of Amsterdam under the supervision of Selma de Mink and Alex de Koter.

I obtained my Master Degree in Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Anton Pannkoek Institute in October 2014 and my Degree in Physics at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in July 2012.

I am interested in binary systems of massive stars, specifically in how does binarity affects the end fate of these stars. The majority of massive stars are in binaries and will interact with their companion, through mass transfer or merging. This will radically affect their evolution and thus the possible core-collapse supernova they will produce. Currently I study the above subject using a stellar population synthesis code called binary_c/nucsyn.

Together with Ylva Gotberg, Mathieu Renzo and other colleagues, I am member of the BinCosmos group, lead by Selma de Mink. I am also a member (and co-organiser) of the Massive Star Group at the Anton Pannekoek Institute.
