Event Description

Particle physicists from the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider are searching for evidence of new physics that might help answer our questions about the structure of the universe. For nearly 10 years the scene has been quiet, without a major discovery to point us in the right direction. With new data coming in 2022-2024 we are preparing to dig even deeper for hints. I will introduce the CMS experiment and share my group's physics goals, along with our contributions to the detector, education and outreach, and increasing diversity in CMS.
