A bstractThe ATLAS and CMS collaborations at the LHC have performed analyses on the existing data sets, studying the case of one vector-like fermion or multiplet coupling to the standard model Yukawa sector. In the near future, with more data available, these experimental collaborations will start to investigate more realistic cases. The presence of more than one extra vector-like multiplet is indeed a common situation in many extensions of the standard model. The interplay of these vector-like… 
Large Hadron Collider phenomenology of vector-like quarks beyond the Narrow Width Approximation
The topic of this thesis is the phenomenology of Vector-Like Quarks (VLQs) at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), with a focus on understanding the difference between the commonly adopted experimental
The LHC potential of vector-like quark doublets
A bstractThe existence of new vector-like quarks is often predicted by models of new physics beyond the Standard Model, and the development of discovery strategies at colliders is the object of an
Loop induced singlet scalar production through the vector like top quark at future lepton colliders
In this paper, we explore the signature of a simplified model which includes a new singlet scalar state and a vector like quark at future lepton colliders. In particular, we study the production of
Fermionic extensions of the Standard Model in light of the Higgs couplings
A bstractAs the Higgs boson properties settle, the constraints on the Standard Model extensions tighten. We consider all possible new fermions that can couple to the Higgs, inspecting sets of up to

This work compute next-to-leading-order predictions for vector-like-quarks pair production and single production in association with jets, with a weak or with a Higgs boson in a general new physics setup and emphasise the extra handles that could be provided by novel vector- like-quark probes never envisaged so far.
New vector-like fermions and flavor physics
A bstractWe study renormalizable extensions of the standard model that contain vector-like fermions in a (single) complex representation of the standard model gauge group. There are 11 models where
Unification with vector-like fermions and signals at LHC
A bstractWe look for minimal extensions of Standard Model with vector like fermions leading to precision unification of gauge couplings. Constraints from proton decay, Higgs stability and
Vector-like quarks coupling discrimination at the LHC and future hadron colliders
A bstractThe existence of new coloured states with spin one-half, i.e. extra-quarks, is a striking prediction of various classes of new physics models. Should one of these states be discovered during

A bstractThe single vector-like top partner hadroproduction in association with top quark in the five and the six-flavour schemes at the LHC is investigated. The inclusive cross section and the
Scalars in (Warped) Extra Dimensions : Climbing from the Bottom to the Top
Almost two decades ago, the paradigm of extra-dimensional models addressing the gauge hierarchy problem attracted much attention through the elegant proposals of large, flat extra dimensions (EDs) -


Model-independent framework for searches of top partners
We propose a model-independent and general framework to study the LHC phenomenology of top partners, i.e. vector-like quarks including particles with different electromagnetic charge. We consider
Framework for model independent analyses of multiple extra quark scenarios
A bstractIn this paper we present an analysis strategy and a dedicated tool to determine the exclusion confidence level for any scenario involving multiple heavy extra quarks with generic decay
LHC signatures of vector-like quarks
This work provides an overview on the current status of phenomenology and searches for heavy vector-like quarks, which are predicted in many models of new physics beyond the Standard Model. Searches
Fully hadronic decays of a singly produced vectorlike top partner at the LHC
Single production of vector-like top partners is becoming a major focus of new searches, as the increasing mass limits on vector-like quarks obtained by the ATLAS and CMS collaborations are such that
Light non-degenerate composite partners at the LHC
A bstractWe study the phenomenological implications of a large degree of compositeness for the light generation quarks in composite pseudo-Nambu-Goldstone-boson Higgs models. We focus in particular

Bounding wide composite vector resonances at the LHC
A bstractIn composite Higgs models (CHMs), electroweak precision data generically push colourless composite vector resonances to a regime where they dominantly decay into pairs of light top partners.

A bstractWe study the LHC signatures of TeV scale vectorlike quarks b′, t′ and χ with electromagnetic charges −1/3, 2/3 and 5/3 that appear in many beyond the standard model (BSM) extensions. We

A bstractWe provide a systematic effective lagrangian description of the phenomenology of the lightest top-partners in composite Higgs models. Our construction is based on symmetry, on selection
