Event Details

Run 2 of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is underway. The increase in pp collision center-of-mass energy from 8 TeV to 13 TeV makes this an exciting time for the search for new physics beyond the standard model. This is particularly true for supersymmetry, which can provide an elegant solution to both the hierarchy problem and a dark matter candidate. I will present results from the analysis of the first 12.9 fb-1 of data taken in 2016 with the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment. In addition to a brief overview of CMS SUSY searches, a search for the supersymmetric partner of the top quark decaying to all-hadronic final states will be discussed.
