IceCube has detected an astrophysical flux of neutrinos, the majority of which was found to be of extragalactic origin. While hints for neutrino sources have been reported, the nature of the correlation between neutrinos and electromagnetic observations is still ambiguous. Moreover, the origin of thousands of astrophysical neutrinos in IceCube data are yet to be correlated to their sources. Here we present a study that combines radio, X-ray, and infrared observations to select active galaxies in extreme conditions suitable for the production of neutrinos. Specifically, we focus on active galaxies undergoing significant matter accretion and require the presence of target matter or radiation. We describe our selection criteria and use ten years of IceCube data to perform a time-integrated stacking analysis of radio-bright active galaxies.
