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

Abstract:

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.
