'Timing the starburst AGN-connection'

There are many theories successful in explaining the observed
correlations between black holes and their host galaxies. In turn,
these theories play a crucial role in explaining many other observed
aspects of the galaxy population. However, observational measurements
of the interaction of black holes with their hosts remain scarce. I
will present results on the growth of black holes in 400 local
galactic bulges which have experienced a strong burst of star
formation in the past 600 Myr. I will show how the processes at work
in this local starburst sample may well be relevant to the
co-evolution of black holes and bulges over cosmic time.
