At small Bjorken-x, the large gluon number density in the nucleon leads to gluon recombination competing with gluon splitting, which could result in saturation of the gluon PDF. This gluon saturation has yet to be conclusively observed. Direct photon production provides sensitivity to gluon densities in protons and nuclei, and the forward acceptance of LHCb detector allows for measurements of this ... More

The latest measurements of the jet fragmentation and the angular distributions of charged particles within and around jets, as performed with the ATLAS detector in Pb+Pb collisions at the LHC a. Jets are direct probes of the QCD medium created in these collisions, and studying jet fragmentation provides insight into the strength and mechanism of jet quenching. Fragmentation functions in Pb+Pb coll ... More

In 2017 CMS was the first experiment to observe the Higgs boson in its decay to Tau Leptons. Now, using 35.9 1/fb of data collected by CMS from proton-proton collisions at the Large Hadron Collider in 2016, this channel is used to search for anomalous couplings in the production of the Higgs. The search is performed using the Matrix Element Likelihood Analysis (MELA) method to constrain four diffe ... More

A measurement of the shape of the differential decay rate and associ- ated Isgur-Wise function for the decay Λ0b → Λc + μ−ν has been performed using data corresponding to 3fb−1 collected with the LHCb detector using proton-proton collisions. The Λ+c μ−ν final states are reconstructed by the detection of a muon and a Λ+c baryon decaying to pK−π+, and the decay Λ0b → Λ+c π+π ... More

Natural supersymmetry has earned a unique focus in LHC search efforts, in part due to its solution to the hierarchy problem. Minimizing fine tuning in this solution leads to light Higgs superpartners, known as higgsinos, with many predictions of their masses well within LHC reach. In order to also provide a valid dark matter candidate, the lightest three higgsinos are expected to have small mass s ... More

Production of massive vector bosons via vector boson scattering provides a direct probe of the self-interactions of the massive vector bosons, which are intimately connected to the Higgs-Englert-Brout mechanism of EW symmetry breaking. A search for vector boson scattering of W and Z bosons has recently been performed by the CMS experiment using data collected in 2016. I will present this search as ... More

In 2012, the LHC experiments discovered a Higgs boson-like particle, however there are still outstanding questions about the Higgs sector. Is this the Standard Model (SM) Higgs? Are there any additional Higgs bosons? Does physics Beyond the SM exist? In this talk I will explain how studying di-Higgs production can provide a unique window into these questions, as well as insight into electroweak sy ... More
