In this talk, Joe Incandela will present an overview of the LHC physics program, including highlights from the discovery of a Higgs boson and a summary of more recent studies that incorporate more data. He will briefly discuss expectations for future results in years to come.

About the Speaker

Joe Incandela is distinguished professor of physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara and a guest professor at CERN. He is the current spokesperson and executive head of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment for 2012-2013, and in July 2012 he presented the experiment’s observation of a new particle resembling a Higgs boson. His current work focuses on the completion of data analyses on all 2011-2012 data, as well as the consolidation of data, repair and upgrades to the detector for future running periods.
