Galaxy formation and evolution is closely tied to the effects of dark matter and supermassive black holes. Aaron Romanowsky will present observations and dynamical modeling of two extreme and mysterious classes of galaxies -- the ultracompact dwarfs and the ultra-diffuse galaxies -- to provide novel constraints on their underlying dark components and their evolutionary histories.
