What Comes After the Higgs boson Discovery?
The Higgs boson discovery provided the last piece of the theory known as the Standard Model of particle physics. While this theory has been very successful, there is a lot that it can’t explain. Researchers at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider are continuing to gather data to explore further mysteries. In this talk, we will discuss some of the questions that still need answering.

Phil Baringer is a Professor of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Kansas. He got his Ph.D. from Indiana University and did postdoctoral work with Purdue University. His research interest is in experimental particle physics (also known as high energy physics). He is a member of the CMS collaboration, which is an international group that is operating an experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.
