The Group

Main content

We use observations from ground- and space-based observatories to understand and quantify the role of growing black holes in the formation and evolution of galaxies.

The group is working on understanding the co-evolution of galaxies and supermassive black holes; how, when and why do accreting black holes at the centers of galaxies regulate the evolution of their host galaxies and alter their evolutionary trajectories? Growing black holes can be the most luminous objects in the universe liberating energy in a variety of forms that can be observed and analyzed using multi-wavelength observations.
