Abstract/Description: This thesis searches for new physics at CMS in the form of microscopic black hole production at a minimum threshold of formation of 2.0 TeV. This analysis will examine data from Run II of the LHC with center-of-mass energy sqrt(s)=13 TeV, and an integrated luminosity of 12.9 +- 0.8 fb^-1. This is the first analysis to search for microscopic black hole production with the requirement of two high pT photons in the final state. After modeling backgrounds through low jet multiplicity control regions, no statistically significant excess is found in the signal region.
