Abstract

The first run of the LHC has just completed and the first set of analyses has just come out. I will review the state of searches for new physics at the LHC and give interpretations of the results. I will focus on the interplay between the discovery of the Higgs boson and the implications for supersymmetric extensions of the Standard Model.

Bio

Jay Wacker received his BS in Physics and Mathematics in 1998 from Iowa State University. He then attended UC Berkeley working under Nima Arkani-Hamed. After receiving his PhD in 2003, he became a postdoctoral scholar at the Stanford Institute for Theoretical Physics. In 2006 he joined the faculty of SLAC. He is the winner of the Outstanding Junior Investigator Award, the Presidential Early Career Award in Science and Engineering and the Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship.
