We investigate the global neutral hydrogen (HI) content of isolated galaxies selected from the SDSS spectroscopic survey with optical evidence of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN). Our sample includes galaxies with unresolved HI observations from the ALFALFA 70% data release combined with deeper HI observations of low-mass galaxies with 7.0 9.5, AGN activity does not correlate with the global HI content. However, for galaxies with 9.2 < log(M*) < 9.5, we identify a set of objects at large distances… Expand

AGN All the Way Down? AGN-like Line Ratios Are Common in the Lowest-mass Isolated Quiescent Galaxies
• Physics
• The Astrophysical Journal

We present spatially resolved kinematic measurements of stellar and ionized gas components of dwarf galaxies in the stellar mass range $10^{8.5} - 10^{10} M_{\odot}$, selected from SDSS DR7 and DR8Expand
Atomic gas fractions in active galactic nucleus host galaxies
• Physics
• 2019
The feedback from an active galactic nucleus (AGN) is frequently invoked as a mechanism through which gas can be heated or removed from a galaxy. However, gas fraction measurements in AGN hosts haveExpand
Radio jets from AGNs in dwarf galaxies in the COSMOS survey: mechanical feedback out to redshift ∼3.4
• Physics
• Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society
• 2019
Dwarf galaxies are thought to host the remnants of the early Universe seed black holes (BHs) and to be dominated by supernova feedback. However, recent studies suggest that BH feedback could alsoExpand
Two growing modes and the morphology–quiescence relation in isolated galaxies
• Physics
• Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society
• 2019
Quiescence in galaxies correlates strongly with the central density/morphology of the stellar distribution. We investigate two possible explanations for this morphology-quiescence relation: 1) theExpand

This study aims to explore the relation between dwarf galaxies ($M_* \leq 5\times10^9 M_\odot$) with AGNs and their environment by comparing neighbourhood parameters of AGN and non-AGN samples. UsingExpand
Multimessenger signatures of massive black holes in dwarf galaxies
Recent discoveries of massive black holes (MBHs) in dwarf galaxies suggest that they may have a more common presence than once thought. Systematic searches are revealing more candidates, but thisExpand
