Searches for new physics at the Large Hadron Collider - with precision and innovation

Bose The discovery of the Higgs Boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2012 was a ground-breaking event in particle physics history.  The LHC concluded four-years of data-taking in 2018  at an unprecedented proton-proton center of mass energy of 13 TeV.  CMS, one of two general-purpose LHC experiments, has collected a high-quality dataset that provides  promising avenues to search for new physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM). I will present new results from the CMS experiment with significantly enhanced sensitivity than previously possible. This includes both measurements with the precision to uncover discrepancies that only BSM physics can explain, as well as direct searches for events with unusual topologies that use innovative techniques and advanced analysis methods.
