Talk Title: "Dark Matter in the Age of Data"


Dark matter is evidence of new physics beyond the Standard Model. There are compelling reasons to expect that the relevant physics will be probed in the current or next-generation experiments. However, taking full advantage of the available data will require a synthesis of results from a wide range of fields. I will present my recent theoretical and phenomenological efforts to connect and improve on the results of dark matter direct detection, indirection detection, LHC physics, and cosmological simulations.
