Indirect detection constraints on the scotogenic dark matter model

Radiative seesaw models have the attractive property of providing dark matter candidates in addition to the generation of neutrino masses. Here we present a study of neutrino signals from the

Direct search for dark matter with the DarkSide experiment

A wide range of observational evidence suggests that the matter content of the Universe is dominated by a non-baryonic and non-luminous component: dark matter. One of the most favoured candidate for

A Dark Matter WIMP That Can Be Detected and Definitively Identified with Currently Planned Experiments

A recently proposed dark matter WIMP has only second-order couplings to gauge bosons and itself. As a result, it has small annihilation, scattering, and creation cross-sections, and is consequently

Bounds from multi-messenger astronomy on the Super Heavy Dark Matter

The purely gravitational evidence supporting the need for dark matter (DM) particles is compelling and based on Galactic to cosmological scale observations. Thus far, the promising WIMP scenarios

Dark sequential Z′ portal: Collider and direct detection experiments

We revisit the status of a Majorana fermion as a dark matter candidate when a sequential Z' gauge boson dictates the dark matter phenomenology. Direct dark matter detection signatures rise from dark

Dark matter searches and study of electrode design in LUX and LZ

There is substantial evidence that over 80% of matter in the universe is dark matter – which is non-baryonic in nature and is thought to be composed of a new, slow-moving, stable particle not found

Consistent Models of Dark Matter at the LHC

In this thesis we study universal properties of dark matter models with a pseudoscalar mediator at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). To obtain a renormalizable simplified model a second Higgs doublet

Present and potential future experimental evidence supporting a multicomponent dark matter scenario

We briefly review the arguments for a multicomponent dark matter scenario which contains both the higgsino of natural supersymmetry (susy) and one or both of two other well-motivated particles—the

Dark compact objects: An extensive overview

We study the structure of compact objects that contain non-self annihilating, self-interacting dark matter admixed with ordinary matter made of neutron star and white dwarf materials. We extend the



Complementarity of direct dark matter detection and indirect detection through gamma-rays

We show, by using an extensive sample of viable supersymmetric models as templates, that indirect detection of dark matter through gamma rays may have a large potential for identifying the nature of

DarkSide-50, a background free experiment for dark matter searches

The existence of dark matter is inferred from gravitational effects, but its nature remains a deep mystery. One possibility, motivated by considerations in elementary particle physics, is that dark

Constraints on dark matter from colliders

We show that colliders can impose strong constraints on models of dark matter, in particular, when the dark matter is light. We analyze models where the dark matter is a fermion or scalar interacting

Missing Energy Signatures of Dark Matter at the LHC

We use ATLAS and CMS searches in the mono-jet + missing energy and mono-photon + missing energy final state to set limits on the couplings of dark matter to quarks and gluons. Working in an effective

Prospects for detecting supersymmetric dark matter in the Galactic halo

If the main halo of the Milky Way is strongly detected, then small dark matter clumps should also be visible, but may well contain no stars, thereby confirming a key prediction of the cold dark matter model.

Colloquium: Annual modulation of dark matter

Direct detection experiments, which are designed to detect the scattering of dark matter off nuclei in detectors, are a critical component in the search for the Universe’s missing matter. This
