Searching for Dark Matter in the Sky

PHY Colloquium

Abstract: The nature of dark matter remains one of the great puzzles of fundamental physics, with potential connections to a plethora of deep questions. Interactions between dark and visible matter could have reshaped the history of the cosmos, and left their signatures in light that is only now reaching our telescopes. I will discuss a range of scenarios for dark matter and their observational signatures, including their future prospects, with a focus on astrophysical and cosmological data.
