Exploring the Unknown at the Energy Frontier
Speaker: Eva Halkiadakis, Rutgers University
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the CERN laboratory is the world's most powerful particle accelerator. The LHC has had a successful and highly productive Run 2 era (2015-2018), colliding protons with a center-of-mass energy of 13TeV, and breaking data-taking records by collecting an unprecedented amount of data at these high energies. The LHC experiments have an extensive program of searches for physics beyond the Standard Model, exploring uncharted territory at the energy frontier, and are preparing for the upcoming Run 3 and the High-Luminosity LHC upgrade. I will present highlights of my research program of new physics searches with the CMS detector.
