Maria Dainotti

Affiliate Research Scientist
Palo Alto, CA
Maria specializes in high energy astrophysics, gamma ray bursts (GRBs), selection bias, statistical methods for astronomical data and active galactic nuclei. She is the discoverer of the Dainotti relations in GRB afterglows between the luminosity at the end of the plateau phase, La, and its rest frame duration, Ta, and in GRB prompt-afterglow between La and the peak luminosity of the prompt emission, Lpeak.
