Abstract

Despite the success of the Standard Model, some long-standing issues such as the hierarchy problem and the nature of dark matter are still left unresolved. New physics frameworks such as Supersymmetry (SUSY) and Universal Extra Dimensions (UED) have been proposed to explain these problems. However, extensive searches at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) for almost a decade have yet to provide us with convincing signals of SUSY and UED. In this talk, we look at the status of specific incarnations of SUSY and UED, known as Stealth SUSY and Minimal UED (MUED) respectively and whether they still evade existing searches from Run 2 of the LHC.

About the Speaker

Marvin M. Flores, National Institute of Physics, University of the Philippines Diliman

Marvin M. Flores obtained his B.S. Physics degree from Silliman University graduating summa cum laude. He finished his M.S. degree and obtained his Ph.D. in Physics from the National Institute of Physics (NIP), University of the Philippines Diliman where he was awarded the Most Outstanding Ph.D. Graduate of the College of Science. He is currently an Assistant Professor at the NIP having just returned from his postdoctoral research on high energy physics at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa. He is also a member of the ATLAS Collaboration at CERN and will head the ATLAS Group that will be based in the Philippines, with NIP recently becoming an ATLAS Associate Member at CERN. His research is focused on physics searches beyond the Standard Model.
