"The perfect storm of recent LHC results "
Speaker: Indara Suarez, Boston University
Abstract: Questions surrounding the mass value of the Higgs as well as astrophysical evidence for Dark Matter suggest that new particles and interactions are awaiting discovery and may be within the reach of the LHC. Over the past few years, my group has taken advantage of the wealth of data collected by the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment to search for these particles by using top quarks and Higgs bosons as guiding lights. Through detector developments and machine learning techniques, we have severely constrained prevailing notions of how natural solutions to Higgs mass hierarchy and dark matter can manifest themselves experimentally. I will show the latest results from the LHC and discuss possible future directions in our search for physics beyond the SM.
