Event Description 

Despite the lack of experimental evidence of its existence, Supersymmetry (SUSY) remains one of the most popular schemes used to extend the Standard Model of Particle Physics. In this talk, I will attempt to give a pedagogical introduction to what supersymmetry means and some of the things it does. Recent experimental anomalies will be discussed and their supersymmetric solution presented. Time permitting, I will talk about things I should have done two years ago before we got scooped.
