Following the discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a major goal is to measure the properties of this particle and much progress has been made in our understanding. The Higgs is also a potential portal to new physics, that may connect the Standard Model of particle physics and new phenomena to explain what is dark matter and why the universe contains more matter than antimatter. I discuss recent experimental developments at the LHC, both in our understanding of the Higgs boson and prospects for testing the viability of new physics scenarios in the future.
