In search of supermassive black hole feedback

In this science research article: Professor Scannapieco’s research focuses on understanding feedback processes in galaxy formation and the evolution of the elements across cosmic time.

Professor Evan Scannapieco and his team at Arizona State University have been investigating the puzzle of why the largest galaxies in the universe, once the most active, have become dormant and ceased to produce stars. They were one of the first to propose a mechanism that involved colossal feedback from supermassive black holes at the centre of the galaxies and […]
