Our group is engaged in the study of the evolution of galaxies and their supermassive black holes.  We are actively carrying out observing campaigns in the optical, near-infrared and X-ray.  Extragalactic surveys in the COSMOS and the Chandra Deep Field - South fields are paving the way for wider area efforts (SuMIRE project) with Hyper-Suprime-Cam (imaging) and Prime-Focus-Spectrograph both to be mounted on the Subaru Telescope.
