Abstract: Most galactic nuclei harbor a supermassive black hole (BH), whose mass is well known to correlate with the host properties including luminosity, stellar mass, stellar velocity dispersion. These tight correlations suggest a physical coupling between supermassive BH growth and galaxy evolution. One key to understanding this coupling is tracing this correlation to higher redshift, determining how and when they emerged and evolved over cosmic time. In this talk, I will describe our recent works that overcome the systematics at higher redshift and establish whether the BH host relation evolves with cosmic time. I will also present a modeling software (GaLight) that can be used to perform two-dimensional model fitting of optical and near-infrared images to characterize the light distribution of galaxies with components including a disk, bulge, bar, and quasar.
