New physics beyond the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics, including Dark Matter (DM), Higgs phenomenology and particle cosmology
Cosmological observations have shown that ordinary matter, such as those making up our body, only occupy about 5% of the energy budget of the current Universe, the left of which consists of dark matter (~27%) and dark energy (~68%). Exploring the nature of DM and how it interacts with the SM will open a new window for us to the unknow matter world.
You can learn more about DM from this introductory paper:

Higgs boson provides the mass origin of the massive particles in the SM. Since its theoretical prediction about half-century ago, Higgs boson was discovered recently in 2012 at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) hosted by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). Careful scrutiny of the Higgs boson properties compared to the SM predictions will guide us towards the deeper understanding of the mass generations of elementary particles.
You can learn more from the publications of Higgs boson discovery in 2012.

Concept for a Future Super Proton-Proton Collider
In the framework of the Big Bang theory, the nature of elementary particles significantly affects the cosmological evolution in the early era and determines the key features of the current Universe in a number of respects. The inextricable interplay between particle physics and cosmology has been increasingly recognized and been developing rapidly.
You can learn more from the following textbooks.
