With the recent start of Run 2 at the Large Hadron Collider, high energy proton collisions enable a sensitive and direct probe into physics at distance scales that have never before been explored.  New physics at these high energies will manifest itself through decays to particles of the Standard Model, all of which have relatively small masses.  These highly Lorentz-boosted Standard Model particles manifest themselves in experiment as collimated streams of particles called jets.  Over the past several years, there has been significant effort in designing observables that can discriminate between jets initiated by different Standard Model particles.  In this talk, I will review this field and discuss my research into the development and predictions of new, powerful observables for revealing the intricate substructure of jets at the Large Hadron Collider.
