Franz's research interests include investigation of deep blank-field surveys (radio through X-ray) to study AGN demographics, the co-eval feeding and evolution of galaxies and super-massive black holes, structure formation, and the study and characterization of nearby supernovae and high-mass X-ray binaries.
