SUSY or Extra Dimensions: that is the question
It is known that models of low energy supersymmetry and models with universal extra dimensions (UED) have similar signatures at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. I will discuss methods for the experimental discrimination between these two possibilities at colliders. Time permitting, I will also talk about the properties of dark matter in UED models and the prospects for its direct detection.

Life without a Higgs
I will review the breaking of gauge symmetries by boundary conditions in extra dimensions and show how WW scattering can be unitarized in Higgsless models. I will also examine how quark and lepton masses can be generated and precision electroweak measurements be satisfied in a toy Higgsless Electroweak model.
