Precision Measurements of Higgs Couplings: Implications for New Physics Scales

The measured properties of the recently discovered Higgs boson are in good agreement with predictions from the Standard Model. However, small deviations in the Higgs couplings may manifest themselves

125 GeV Higgs boson and electroweak phase transition model classes

Recently, the ATLAS and CMS detectors have discovered a bosonic particle which, to a reasonable degree of statistical uncertainty, fits the profile of the Standard Model Higgs. One obvious

An updated analysis of Inert Higgs Doublet Model in light of the recent results from LUX, PLANCK, AMS-02 and LHC

In light of the recent discovery by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) of a Higgs-like particle with a narrow mass range of 125–126 GeV, we perform an updated analysis

Status of invisible Higgs decays

A second Higgs from the Higgs portal

A bstractIn the Higgs portal framework, the Higgs field generally mixes with the Standard Model (SM) singlet leading to the existence of two states, one of which is identified with the 125 GeV scalar

Electroweak Symmetry Breaking and the Higgs Boson: Confronting Theories at Colliders

In this review, we discuss methods of parsing direct information from collider experiments regarding the Higgs boson and describe simple ways in which experimental likelihoods can be consistently

Singlet neighbors of the Higgs boson

A bstractThe newly discovered resonance at 125 GeV has properties consistent with the Standard Model (SM) Higgs particle, although some production and/or decay channels currently exhibit O(1)

Effective Field Theories for the LHC

In this thesis I study applications of effective field theories to understand aspects of QCD jets and their substructure at the Large Hadron Collider. In particular, I introduce an observable, $D_2$,

Semivisible Jets: Dark Matter Undercover at the LHC.

This Letter will demonstrate that the transverse mass-computed using the final-state jets and the missing energy-provides a powerful discriminator between the signal and the QCD background.

New Physics Undercover at the LHC

With the completion of 7 TeV and 8 TeV data taking at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the physics community witnessed one of the great triumphs of modern physics: the completion of the Standard



Measuring the invisible Higgs width at the 7 and 8 TeV LHC

A bstractThe LHC is well on track toward the discovery or exclusion of a light Standard Model (SM)-like Higgs boson. Such a Higgs has a very small SM width and can easily have large branching

Unburied Higgs boson: Jet substructure techniques for searching for Higgs’ decay into gluons

Many models of physics beyond the standard model yield exotic Higgs decays. Some of these, particularly those in which the Higgs decays to light quarks or gluons, can be very difficult to discover

Search for the elusive Higgs boson using jet structure at LHC

We consider the production of a light non-standard model Higgs boson of order 100 GeV with an associated W boson at CERN Large Hadron Collider. We focus on an interesting scenario that, the Higgs

Could a light Higgs boson illuminate the dark sector

The impact a new neutral light particle of spin 0, 1/2, 1, or 3/2 could have on the tiny width of a light Higgs boson is systematically analyzed. To this end, we include all the relevant effective
