Personal profile

Research interests

I study Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) - accreting supermassive black holes at the centres of galaxies.

I am interested in understanding the processes that fuel supermassive black holes, the physical properties of AGN as well as the impact AGN have on their host galaxies. My work is observational and I work with both imaging and spectroscopic data.
