HET SEMINAR<br>Searching for Supersymmetry, Natural or Not

The LHC has placed strong constraints on many signals of supersymmetry. This is beginning to lead to some tension in the idea of supersymmetry as a fully natural solution to the hierarchy problem. However, nonminimal models can evade direct searches, as can models that are somewhat fine-tuned. I will discuss some ways that SUSY can be hiding from us, and how a broader LHC search strategy as well as precision Standard Model measurements and dark matter experiments can explore these hiding places in the future.
