The Higgs as a portal to New Physics

The discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) marks the culmination of a decades-long hunt for the last ingredient of the Standard Model. At the same time, this discovery has started a new era in the search for more fundamental physics. In this talk, I will discuss how tests of new physics beyond the Standard Model using the Higgs boson are complementary to direct searches for new particles. In particular, I will motivate new searches at the LHC that can discover otherwise undetected new phenomena.
