Title: New insights on initial-state fluctuations, QGP fluid from pA and AA at the LHC
Abstract: I will discuss some recent progress in understanding the nature of initial-state fluctuations and properties of Quark-Gluon Fluid in relativistic heavy ion collisions from the CMS experiment. Recently, new data from proton-lead collisions at the LHC challenged our traditional paradigm of a nearly perfect QGP fluid. I will talk about the implication of the new results from CMS and also discuss where we are going next in the future.
