About 85% of matter in the Universe that makes up galaxies and clusters is dark matter, while only about 15% is normal atomic matter that makes up stars, planets, and gas.  Although dark matter is fundamentally important in determining the structure of the Universe, the particle physics of dark matter is a mystery.  My research deals with how the particle nature of dark matter may be identified through astrophysical observations and experiments, as well as connections to other searches for physics beyond the Standard Model.
