Galaxy-scale bars are expected to provide an effective means for driving material towards the central region in spiral galaxies, and possibly feeding supermassive black holes (BHs). Here we present a statistically-complete study of the effect of bars on average BH accretion. From a well-selected sample of 50,794 spiral galaxies (with M* ~ 0.2-30 x 10^10 Msun) extracted from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Galaxy Zoo 2 project, we separate those sources considered to contain galaxy-scale bars from…

Major Mergers Are Not the Dominant Trigger for High-accretion AGNs at z ∼ 2
Research over the past decade has shown diminishing empirical evidence for major galaxy mergers being a dominating or even important mechanism for the growth of supermassive black holes in galaxies
A Large Population of Luminous Active Galactic Nuclei Lacking X-Ray Detections: Evidence for Heavy Obscuration?
We present a large sample of infrared-luminous candidate active galactic nuclei (AGNs) that lack X-ray detections in Chandra, XMM-Newton, and NuSTAR fields. We selected all optically detected SDSS
Galaxy Interactions Trigger Rapid Black Hole Growth: an unprecedented view from the Hyper Suprime-Cam Survey
Collisions and interactions between gas-rich galaxies are thought to be pivotal stages in their formation and evolution, causing the rapid production of new stars, and possibly serving as a mechanism

We present a study of X-ray source populations in M87, the cD galaxy of the Virgo cluster, using 12 archival {\it Chandra} observations with a total exposure of $\sim$680 ks spanning about a decade.
Observational constraints on the feeding of supermassive black holes
Supermassive black holes grow at the centre of galaxies in consonance with them. In this Review Article, we discuss the mass-feeding mechanisms that lead to this growth in active galactic nuclei

Based on the spectroscopic and shear catalogs for SDSS galaxies in the local Universe, we compare optically-selected active galactic nuclei (AGNs) with control star-forming and quiescent galaxies on
Galaxy Zoo: secular evolution of barred galaxies from structural decomposition of multiband images
We present the results of two-component (disc+bar) and three-component (disc+bar+bulge) multiwavelength 2D photometric decompositions of barred galaxies in five Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) bands
The complex jet- and bar-perturbed kinematics in NGC 3393 as revealed with ALMA and GEMINI–GMOS/IFU
NGC 3393, a nearby Seyfert 2 galaxy with nuclear radio jets, large-scale and nuclear bars, and a posited secondary super massive black hole, provides an interesting laboratory to test the physics of
