Astrophysics Research Group

The Creighton astrophysics research group focuses on observational-based studies of active galactic nuclei (AGN), also known as quasars.  AGN are the energetic cores of galaxies that are emitting tremendous amounts of radiation over a broad range of the electromagnetic spectrum, powered by the accretion of matter into supermassive blackholes.  The group's current research involves studies of high velocity, energetic mass outflows that are observed in some AGN.
