Events at Physics
Events on Friday, November 3rd, 2017
- Physics Department Colloquium
- Unlocking the mysteries of the Universe with the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider
- Time: 3:30 pm
- Place: 2241 Chamberlin Hall
- Speaker: Tulika Bose, Boston University
- Abstract: The discovery of the Higgs Boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2012 was a ground-breaking event in particle physics history. The LHC has restarted recently at an unprecedented center of mass energy of about 13 TeV and the data collected by the CMS experiment is expected to help fully understand the nature of electroweak symmetry breaking and potentially discover new physics. In this talk, I will review recent results from the CMS experiment with special focus on searches for physics beyond the Standard Model.
- Host: Sridhara Dasu
- Graduate School Admissions Q&A I: Meeting with an Admissions Committee Member
- Time: 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
- Place: 2223 Chamberlin
- Abstract: Anyone interested in learning more about graduate school is welcome to attend a Q&A panel with admissions committee member Stanislav Boldyrev. This will be an opportunity for undergrads to ask questions about applying to graduate school and to learn about what an admissions committee looks for in an applicant.
This event is open to all undergraduates, and anyone interested is encouraged to attend.
- Host: Women and Gender Minorities in Physics
