Jets are known to be strongly modified when propagating through a hot and dense medium. Current LHC and RHIC results in heavy-ion systems show a strong suppression of the total jet yield, increase of dijet and boson-jet momentum imbalance and modification of the jet substructure. The description of the later is challenging for all event Monte Carlo event generators that describe jet modifications based on a pQCD description of single medium-induced gluon radiation [1]. Nonetheless, all these models lack the existence of interplay between coherence and decoherence phenomena that occur to a QCD antenna when propagating through the QGP, an effect that is known to qualitatively describe all intra-jet observables so far [2]. In this talk, we present the first pQCD based Monte Carlo event generator that implements such in-medium modifications of the coherence pattern of a parton shower. Our results will allow to more accurately separate the effect of medium response [3] to the propagation of a fast particle from those of the medium modification of parton branching, on a reconstructed jet.
