I am interested in using LSST to study the evolution of quasars through cosmic time, particularly in the context of their obscuration and luminosity functions. I am also interested in using LSST to gather insights into quasar environments in a large range of luminosity and redshifts. I have been organizing the activities of the photometric redshift subgroup of the AGN Science Collaboration. I led three cadence notes early this year, focusing on the effects of the observing strategies being considered on AGN photo-z accuracy as well as on the number of quasars expected in the survey. I also co-wrote three letters of recommendation with Mara Salvato on AGN photo-zs in response to the recent call by DM.
