The ASREN Community is extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Dr. Abdulmonem Al Kharusi.
Dr. Abdulmonem was a much loved, highly respected and greatly admired member of the community. Indeed he was someone who truly worked with passion, integrity and energy, always engaging colleagues for discussions and share of knowledge. That he did this with friendliness and a sharp mind served to add to his charm of personality.
As a Director of the Oman Research and Education Network (OMREN), Dr. Abdulmonem was heavily involved in the regional and global NREN activities. He participated in various ASREN community meetings and conferences, working hand in hand with other Arab NRENs and significantly contributing to the strength of the community. He was an important driver for the Omani NREN, but also for the growth of the Arab NRENs and ASREN.
He will be sorely missed, and our thoughts are with his family and colleagues at this difficult time.
“I had the privilege to know my brother Abdulmonem for 7 years, he was enormously respected, immensely knowledgeable and truly wise; the ASREN community has lost a true leader, we will miss Abdulmonem deeply, and none of us will forget the pleasure and privilege it has been to work with him. Our condolences to our colleagues at OMERN, and most especially to Abdulmonem’ family.” ASREN Managing Director Yousef Torman.
