Title: Galaxies and their Supermassive Black Holes: Lessons from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey

Abstract: High quality spectra from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey have enabled us to compile and study unprecedentedly large samples of of galaxies with and without active nuclei. This data is teaching us a great deal about galaxy formation and the link between galaxy evolution and black hole growth. In this talk, I will review some of the main results from our ongoing program to use this wonderful data set to understand more about how galaxies came to be.
