NRAO Special Colloquium

Date: Tue. 1 Dec, 2015 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Duration: 1 Hour
Location: NRAO

Dr. Amy Kimball, a post-doctoral fellow with the CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science division in Australia, is the guest speaker for a NRAO/NM Special Colloquium. Her talk is titled "Host Galaxy Properties of QSO Populations." Knowledge of the role that active galactic nuclei (AGN) and quasi-stellar objects (QSO) play in galaxy evolution is far from complete. The aim of Kimball's research is to improve the understanding of AGN/galaxy interaction through demographic studies of QSO populations and their host galaxies. She will present current research with a focus on radio-quiet QSOs and extremely luminous QSOs. She will also discuss how observations from VLA, ALMA and other instruments will be crucial for obtaining a full picture of these powerful sources. 11 a.m. in the auditorium of the Domenici Science Operations Center.
