-Professor Thaler is a theoretical particle physicist whose research focus is the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiment at CERN.  The LHC is pushing the frontiers of scientific knowledge through high energy particle collisions.  ​Thaler'​s ​research is aimed at finding new ways to use LHC data to address outstanding questions in fundamental physics, including ​the origin of mass, the nature of dark matter, the apparent weakness of gravity, and the symmetry structure of our universe.  ​In his work, Thaler ​analyzes the theoretical frameworks and possible LHC signatures for physics beyond the standard model. ​ He is particularly interested in how the properties of dark matter might be tested at the LHC, and has proposed a scenario in which LHC measurements of dark matter would also provide insight into the structure of space-time.  In addition, he works on methods to improve LHC data analysis, including new ways to measure and characterize jetscollimated sprays of particles that are copiously produced at the LHC.+Professor Thaler is a theoretical particle physicist whose research focus is the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiment at CERN.  The LHC is pushing the frontiers of scientific knowledge through high-energy particle collisions.  ​His research is aimed at finding new ways to use LHC data to address outstanding questions in fundamental physics, including the nature of dark matter, the apparent weakness of gravity, and the symmetry structure of our universe.  ​He analyzes the theoretical frameworks and possible LHC signatures for physics beyond the standard model. ​ He is particularly interested in novel experimental signatures for supersymmetry and how the properties of dark matter might be tested at the LHC.  In addition, he works on new methods to characterize jets---collimated sprays of particles that are copiously produced at the LHC---and has developed a number of techniques to exploit the substructure of jets to enhance the search for new physics.
