I am interested in Active Galactic Nuclei and how they interact with their host Galaxies. Specifically, I am interested in Quasars and the nature of the gas and dust which surrounds the central black hole, the structure and physical conditions of the Broad Emission Line Region, how star formation was switched on and off in the first Galaxies, and the processes which give rise to the co-evolution of Galaxies and their central SMBHs.
