Jets are excellent probes of the properties of the quark-gluon-plasma. Understanding the evolution of jets inside the hot and dense medium requires a good understanding of the interaction between the medium and the leading parton within the jet. We use a newly developed transport model called LIDO to study this phenomenon. The model includes both large-angle scattering and diffusion processes, as well as improved treatment of parton bremsstrahlung. We conduct a Bayesian analysis of jet parameters in order to determine a high-likelihood range of parameters that is capable of describing various jet observables as well as open heavy flavor observables within a large pT and centrality range in both large and small systems.
