Research Areas research areas


research overview

  • Professor Comerford's research focuses on galaxy evolution and active galactic nuclei (AGNs). Specifically, she works on pairs of supermassive black holes that are brought together during galaxy mergers. These black hole pairs can be observable as AGNs with kiloparsec-scale separations, and they are useful as tracers of galaxy mergers and supermassive black hole growth.
