To introduce myself to the extragalactic team at IA-Lisbon (and everyone else at IA), I will present my research background in observational astrophysics. This research has been mainly focused on the cosmological (co-)evolution of AGN and galaxies using the extensive multiwavelength data of large area surveys like ELAIS, COSMOS, GOODS, SWIRE, and more recently ALHAMBRA. I will briefly highlight some of the most significant results and contributions but will mostly concentrate on the recent work regarding the detection and characterization of AGN and QSO activity in the photometric survey ALHAMBRA. The ALHAMBRA survey is a large (~4 sq. degress) ground-based, optical medium-band and NIR photometric survey, specially optimized for high accuracy photometric redshifts. Within this framework, I will also briefly discuss the main ideas and goals behind my FCT fellowship project, "Triggering mechanisms of AGN activity and the importance of accretion power over cosmic time", its current status and work plan.
