I am interested in the relationship between active galactic nuclei and their host galaxies. In particular, I investigate quasars through the emission and absorption (narrow and broad) lines in their spectra in order to better understand the link between the quasars themselves and the outflowing material, as well as their effect on the host galaxies.
