We detect "supermassive" black holes in galaxy centers today. Their masses can be millions or billions or suns, almost as massive as a dwarf galaxy. What are the origins of these black holes? Professor Volonteri will discuss how these black holes were formed shortly after the Big Bang, and what their role on our galaxy is.
