Black Holes and Galaxy Exhaustion

December 2, 2019, 7:00 PM

Free

Dale Kocevski, assistant professor of physics and astronomy, focuses his research on the study of distant galaxies that host actively accreting supermassive black holes, otherwise known as active galactic nuclei (AGN). There is mounting evidence that the evolution of galaxies is closely linked to the growth of their central black holes, but how this connection is established remains one of the key unanswered questions in astrophysics today. To investigate these issues, his work uses multi-wavelength observations ranging from the infrared to the study of star formation activity, morphologies, and environments of galaxies undergoing active black hole growth.
