Talk Title: "Searching for Supersymmetry, Natural or Not"

Abstract:


The LHC has placed strong constraints on many signals of supersymmetry. This is beginning to lead to some tension in the idea of supersymmetry as a fully natural solution to the hierarchy problem. However, nonminimal models can evade direct searches, as can models that are somewhat fine-tuned. I will discuss some ways that SUSY can be hiding from us, and how a broader LHC search strategy as well as precision Standard Model measurements and dark matter experiments can explore these hiding places in the future.
