My Research.

My research is on the role of super-massive black holes in the evolution of the most massive galaxies in the Universe. My colleagues and I are trying to understand how super-massive black holes and their galaxies grow up together, and what other processes might be responsible for driving or possibly stunting the growth of both the galaxy and its central super-massive black hole.

Some of the topics I am currently working on are:

  • A Billion orders of Magnitude in Super-Massive Black Hole (SMBH) scales.
    • Probing SMBH accretion with ALMA.
    • The effects of SMBH feedback on massive galaxies.
    • The SMBH feedback loop on Mpc scales.
  • The Most Massive Galaxies.
    • Brightest Cluster Galaxies.
    • Massive elliptical galaxies in the nearby Universe.
  • City Living: The Universe's most populated environments.
    • The Cluster AGN Topography Survey.
    • Merging galaxy clusters; understanding the build-up of structure.
    • The First Galaxy Clusters.

The collaborations of which I am a part.

  • The Cluster AGN Topography Survey (CATS).
  • The Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI).
  • The South Pole Telescope (SPT).
  • The Lynx Observatory (Lynx).
  • The Athena Observatory (Athena).
