We present an inclusive search for a Higgs boson with high transverse momentum decaying to a bottom-antibottom quark pair in pp collisions using the 2016 data sample corresponding to 35.9fb−1collected by the CMS experiment at LHC. High pT Higgs bosons candidates are reconstructed in a single jet with opening angle corresponding to R = 0.8 (AK8 jet). Jet substructure and dedicated b-tagging techniques are then used to identify boosted Higgs boson to bb.
