Speakers: Prof Daniela Bortoletto

In 2012, the discovery of the Higgs boson with a mass of about 125 GeV at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's most powerful particle accelerator, marked a triumph for both experimental and theoretical particle physics. However, this discovery raises major questions about the nature of this particle and its mass. Now the LHC is colliding protons at 13 TeV, the highest energy ever achieved in the world, opening up the exploration of a new uncharted physics territory. I will present what we have learned about the Higgs boson during the first run of the LHC and with the Large datasets that are being collected at the highest energy ever achieved. I will also highlight selected results on searches for new phenomena that we been made possible by the higher collision energies.
