We analyze the WIMP search data from the Large Underground Xenon (LUX) experiment 2014-2016 WIMP search run (a 33,480 kg-day exposure) under a non-relativistic effective field theory (EFT) framework. The WIMP nucleon coupling is investigated for fifteen different effective operators individually. The analysis of several of these operators motivates an expansion of the WIMP search energy range beyond that of the standard spin-independent and spin-dependent analyses. We present a 90% confidence level exclusion limit on the coupling constants of select operators obtained via the profile likelihood ratio technique.
