The ALICE experiment is designed to study the properties the hot and dense medium, the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP), produced in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions at the LHC. Measuring production of hadrons with large Q2 transfer in these collisions provides the possibility to explore one of the most spectacular effects — the in-medium parton energy loss. By varying the observables among light and heavy flavored hadrons and fully reconstructed jets and by changing the colliding systems from pp to p–Pb and Pb–Pb, one can explore the transport properties of hot matter in great details. Here an overview of recent ALICE results on high-pT hadron and jet production in pp, p-A and A-A collisions at LHC energies is presented.
