摘要：The exploration of the High Energy frontier intensifies at the LHC’s Run-2, where a large dataset of proton-proton collisions at centre-of-mass energy of 13TeV is accumulating. The Higgs boson, discovered at LHC’s Run-1, is now providing a new window for exploring our universe in search for new physics beyond the Standard Model of Particle Physics, and Higgs pair production is one such process, arguably one of the most sensitive ones probing for new physics. I will review the latest results from the ATLAS search for Higgs pair production and their implications/interpretations, and will discuss the future prospects for this research area.
NK is Professor of Particle Physics at UCL. Since he joined UCL in 2002, his research has focused on the ATLAS experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. He is currently the deputy director of the UCL Particle Physics group (comprising ~80 academic, research, technical staff and PhD students), Head of the UCL ATLAS team and PI of ATLAS-UK, the largest UK research team with nearly 300 members from 15 institutes. He has made strong contributions to the ATLAS Trigger system and the R&D for its upgrades for the high luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) project that will run between 2026 and the late 2030s and is the ATLAS coordinator of the Level-1 Track Trigger R&D working group. He has also pioneered the search for new physics via Higgs boson pair production at the LHC.
Since April 2015, NK is the Vice-Dean International for the UCL Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MAPS), and member of UCL’s North America Steering Committee.
