Ubiquitous (and Obscured) Nuclear Activity in Star-Forming Galaxies

Stephanie Juneau


While it is clear that gas fuels both star formation and nuclear activity in galaxies, the connection between the growth of their stellar content and that of their central supermassive black hole remains elusive. What are the governing physical processes? Do the stars and central black hole grow in lock-step? Using multi-wavelength tracers on a sample of actively star-forming galaxies at intermediate redshifts (0.3
