Title: Testing TeV scale new physics under the ground and in the sky
Abstract: Particle physics has entered the most exciting era in its history with floods of data flowing in from all experimental frontiers. The discovery of the Higgs boson is only the beginning of this new era. We still face the most profound questions in Nature such as the nature of the Higgs boson, the mechanism to keep it light and the identity of dark matter. Theory driven and data driven approaches shall be combined to make further progress in addressing these questions. In this talk, I will go through several examples of Large Hadron Collider physics and dark matter physics to illustrate the deep theoretical implications we could draw from the data and the new theory scenarios we could explore with the data. I will also briefly discuss future particle physics projects and comment on their powerful physics potentials.
