Talk Title: "Discovering new particles after the Higgs"

Abstract:

The discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider marks the culmination of a decades-long hunt for the last ingredient of the Standard Model. At the same time, this discovery has started a new era in the search for more fundamental physics. In this talk, I will discuss two complementary ways to test New Physics beyond the Standard Model: the direct production of new particles at high energy machines, and the search for rare processes and for small deviations from Standard Model expectations at high precision machines. In particular, I will highlight the role of the Higgs boson in shedding light on New Physics, and motivate new searches that can discover otherwise undetected new phenomena.
