Research on AGN


The formation and evolution of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN), attributed to accreting massive black holes (BHs), are closely related to the formation and evolution of the galaxies which host them. Our group has been studying the co-evolution of AGN, BHs, and their host galaxies for several years now. We rely on a multiwavelength approach, from the millimeter and the IR to the X-ray. Specifically, our group is engaged in studies of:
