Joint evolution of supermassive black holes and galaxies

Supermassive black holes reside at the center of galaxies and release an extraordinary amount of energy during their accretion phase. Such energy drives galaxy-scale gas outflows that can significantly influence the evolution of the host galaxy. Despite the remarkable theoretical and observational progress in quantifying the energetics and dynamics of such outflows, establishing their role during the formation and evolution of galaxies remains a long-standing problem in modern astrophysics. In this seminar, I will discuss how a novel observational and theoretical framework is the key to make a major breakthrough in understanding outflows driven by supermassive black holes.
