Searching for the Supersymmetric Partner to the Top Quark at ATLAS

Physics colloquium preview:


Date: Thursday, October 27th, 2016

Speaker: Stephanie Majewski, University of Oregon


Since 2009, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has performed tremendously, delivering copious amounts of proton-proton collision data at center-of-mass energies of 7, 8, and 13 TeV. Analyzing these data, the ATLAS experiment has conducted a broad search for Supersymmetry, a compelling theory for physics beyond the Standard Model. No conclusive evidence of a super-partner has yet been seen, but

Stephanie Majewski likes it when things bump into each other.

Which is a huge OVER-simplification of her work in the field of physics at the University of Oregon.

But it IS true that she learns a lot from atoms crashing into each other, especially at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Switzerland.

Dr. Majewski’s work is the topic of this month’s installment of “cUriOus: Research Meets Radio.”

We pick her brain about dark matter, supersymmetry, and more.
