Title: The Art of the Impossible: Probing Challenging Higgs Channels at the LHC

Abstract: The search for the Higgs boson was central to the conception and design of the LHC detectors. However, measurements of the Higgs coupling to the second and third-generation quarks were regarded as extremely challenging and, in some cases, impossible.  Scientific ingenuity and original thought have allowed ATLAS and CMS to probe the coupling of the Higgs boson to quarks. I will discuss the techniques used to achieve this and provide a perspective on future directions in Higgs physics.
