Oral Presentation Beyond Standard Model Physics

Joseph Haley (Oklahoma State University (US))

### Description

One of the most pressing issues in particle physics is the hierarchy problem: how is the Higgs boson so light? A common feature in many of the theories proposed to solve the hierarchy problem is the prediction of TeV-scale vector like quarks. This talk will give an overview of the recent searches for vector like quarks performed by the ATLAS experiment and the combination of vector like quark searches using 36 fb$^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity from $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV recorded by the ATLAS detector.
