I will present a new class of jet/event substructure observable called collinear drop and its use in the search for novel signatures of jet modifications and medium responses. It is demonstrated using Monte Carlo simulations generated with Jewel how underlying jet-medium interactions can be systematically examined using collinear-drop observables. Studies using LEP open data and applications to Electron Ion Collider will be discussed. Analytic insights on the modifications of such observables will also be given using soft-collinear effective theory with Glauber gluon interactions.
