A summary of experimental searches for Supersymmetry at the CERN LHC will be presented. Results will be covered from the ATLAS and CMS collaborations using proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV.

We present a supersymmetric left-right model which predicts gauge coupling unification close to the string scale and both extra vector bosons and vector-like quarks at the TeV scale. The subtleties in constructing a model which is in agreement with the measured quark masses and mixing for such a low left-right breaking scale are discussed. It is shown that in the constrained version of this...

We construct an extension of the Standard Model (SM) which is based on grand unification with Pati-Salam symmetry. The setup is supplemented with the idea of spontaneous flavour symmetry breaking mediated through flavon fields with renormalizable couplings to new heavy fermions. While we argue that the new gauge bosons in this approach can be sufficiently heavy to be irrelevant at low...

In order to solve the hierarchy problem, the stop quark should be rather light and its mass can be close to the one of the LSP. If the mass difference of the stop to the neutralino LSP is smaller than the top mass it can only decay flavour violating (mainly to charm and neutralino). The decay is not allowed in naive MFV at tree-level and is suppressed by small CKM angels in symmetry based MFV...

In a recent study, we looked at the sensitivity of the proposed SHiP experiment to the LQD operator in R-Parity violating supersymmetric theories. For that purpose, we focused on single neutralino production via rare meson decays and the observation of downstream neutralino decays into charged mesons inside the SHiP decay chamber. We provided a generic list of effective operators and decay...
