String shoving in jets in PYTHIA8

Jet observables in dijet events are excellent probes to study collision dynamics in dense systems. Interacting Lund strings will affect jet observables and suggests a new common mechanism responsible for jet modification in p-A and A-A. In this talk, we present our new implementation of the string shoving mechanism in PYTHIA8 which lets us study the effects on jet observables in p-p and nuclear collisions. We also present preliminary results for di hadron correlation studies and show the effects in hadron-jet correlation studies.
