Title: 
New Physics Explanations for Recent LHC Excesses
Abstract: 
I will review some small to medium excesses in LHC search data with respect to Standard Model predictions: in hadronically decaying di-(electroweak) bosons at an invariant mass of 2 TeV and in di-photons at 750 GeV. I shall then present R-parity violating supersymmetric scenarios that can separately explain each excess via resonant sneutrino production.
