The Higgs boson is supposedly the particle in the Standard Model responsible for giving mass to all the other fundamental particles. To test this proposition, we need to measure the interaction strengths of the Higgs with other particles and see if they correspond to the measured particle masses. In this talk I'll review some of the technical challenges faced when trying to extract the Higgs boson's couplings to other particles and describe how studying concrete models with extended Higgs sectors can help.

CERN's Large Hadron Collider has delivered enough high energy data to enable discovery and exploration by the LHC experiments.  The few thousand members of the ATLAS Collaboration have used this data to discover and make measurements of standard model particles and to search for physics beyond the standard model.  In this talk I will share the successes and challenges of physics at the LHC from the perspective of using one particle, the tau lepton, as a probe for new physics.
