Title: Constraining extended Higgs sectors at the LHC and beyond

Speaker: Tania Robens (Michigan State University) 

Abstract: With the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012, particle physics has entered an exciting era. While the LHC experiments currently do not find clear evidence for physics beyond the Standard Model, theoretical and experimental uncertainties still leave enough space for new physics. I will discuss the status of two scenarios that extend the scalar sector of the Standard Model, vis., a model with a simple scalar extension as well as a two Higgs doublet model with a dark matter candidate.
