I work with Julie Comerford and Francisco Müller-Sánchez on confirming and analyzing dual Active Galactic Nucleus candidates. I also study moderate-luminosity AGN in the local universeI and use an iterative Markov Chain Monte Carlo process to model and derive the energetics of biconical AGN outflows in these galaxies. I observe these z<0.1 galaxies with the DIS instrument on the 3.5m ARC telescope at Apache Point Observatory.
