My research focuses on characterizing the particle nature of dark matter.  Several theories beyond the Standard Model of particle physics predict new elementary particles, some of which may be suitable dark-matter candidates.  However, to confirm or rule out these candidates will require the combination of data from dark-matter-detection experiments, particle accelerators, and astrophysical and cosmological observations.  I have investigated a number of theoretical and phenomenological issues related to the identification of dark matter through these means.  I am also more broadly interested in various topics in particle astrophysics and early-Universe cosmology.
