The next generation cosmic microwave background (CMB) experiment, CMB-S4, will make unprecedented measurements of secondary anisotropies in the CMB. I will focus on observations of the thermal and kinetic Sunyaev-Zel’dovich (SZ) effects, which will provide new windows into the thermodynamic properties of galaxy groups and clusters. I will show how we can constrain important baryonic processes, like feedback, that govern group and cluster formation through the high fidelity SZ profile measurements from CMB-S4. Additionally, I will describe the prospects to constrain fundamental physics from SZ observations and how to mitigate the modeling uncertainties associated with the baryonic processes that currently limit these constraints.
