Quest for Dark Matter at the LHC — The Supersymmetric Paradigm

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) concluded Run-2 operations at end of 2018 delivering proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. The CMS and ATLAS collaborations have been analyzing the data corresponding to ~140/fb integrated luminosity collected by each experiment – it is the largest dataset ever collected by collider based experiments at the highest energy available ! The speaker will give a gist of the tools and techniques used for identifying signatures of the long sought Dark Matter, at the CMS experiment. She will briefly discuss the recent Supersymmetry (SUSY) results using the full Run-2 dataset, and plans for detector upgrades in near future.
