ATLAS Live talk: Chasing the unknown (with the very well known!) by Dr Ludovica Aperio Bella

On 16 November 2023 at 6pm CET, Dr. Ludovica Aperio Bella will give a live public talk on the ATLAS Youtube Channel about precision measurements at the LHC.
Why are “precision measurements” of known particles so important?
Experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have consistently confirmed the Standard Model of particle physics in an impressive manner. As yet, there is no definitive evidence indicating new physics phenomena in the TeV range. In the absence of clear, direct signals for these phenomena, delving into the measurement of the fundamental constituents of the Standard Model might uncover unexpected surprises, potentially illuminating the way for the next groundbreaking discovery.
Dr. Ludovica Aperio Bella is a Research Scientist at DESY, working on the ATLAS experiment at CERN. Her extensive research spans diverse physics analyses, ranging from high-mass exotic searches to precision measurements of the properties of the Higgs boson, as well as the W and Z bosons. Throughout her career, Dr. Aperio Bella has assumed pivotal leadership roles within the ATLAS experiment, contributing significantly to both physics and performance groups. Currently, she leads a research team dedicated to advancing precision measurements of the W boson and the Drell-Yan process.
This event is part of a series of ATLAS Live Public Talks held on YouTube. You can watch more in the dedicated YouTube playlist.
