Speaker: Bhupal Dev (Washington U.)
Subject: New Physics at Neutrino Telescopes

The recent observation of high-energy neutrinos at the IceCube neutrino telescope has opened a new era in neutrino astrophysics. Understanding all aspects of these events is very important for both Astrophysics and Particle Physics ramifications. In this talk, I will discuss a few possible new physics scenarios, such as dark matter, leptoquarks and supersymmetry, that could be probed using the IceCube data. I will also relate this to the puzzling observation of two upgoing EeV events recently made by the ANITA experiment that were not seen by IceCube.
