Where is the next discovery at the LHC?

  • Deepak Kar School of Physics, University of Witwatersrand

Abstract

After the discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2012, no signs of new physics have been established. However, this result has not prevented us from coming up with new and improved techniques to search for new physics, and perform innovative measurements with unprecedented precision. In this talk, such recent highlights from the LHC will be discussed, with a focus on future directions.

About the Speaker

Deepak Kar is a senior lecturer at the School of Physics in the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. He received his PhD from the University of Florida, and before moving to South Africa, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Technische Universität Dresden and the University of Glasgow. He is a member of the ATLAS collaboration of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, where his research interests are the use of jet substructure techniques in new physics searches, measurements to improve modeling of Monte Carlo event generators, and the use of machine learning methods in particle physics. He had held several positions of responsibility within the ATLAS collaboration.
