Title: The secret life of quarks

Abstract: Quarks and gluons are the fundamental constituents of most of the visible matter in the Universe but they are never detected directly in experiment. Understanding how protons, neutrons, nuclei and their more exotic cousins emerge from the quantum fluctuations of quarks and gluons is a grand challenge in theoretical physics. At the same time, quarks and gluons hold they key to interpreting some of the most sensitive searches for new physics beyond the paradigm of the Standard Model of particle physics. I will explore how calculations on the worlds largest supercomputers are providing insight into the emergence of the structure of matter and the nature of nuclei at their deepest level and delivering critical inputs into searches for new physics at the LHC and in laboratory based searches for dark matter.
