Title: "Probing Elusive Dark Sectors in the Lab and in the Sky"
Abstract: "The experimental evidence for the existence of the Dark Matter (DM) in our Universe comes so far uniquely from gravitational probes, suggesting that the DM candidate might reside in a sector of the theory whose constituents are neutral under the SM gauge interactions. Motivated by this consideration, I will discuss elusive dark sectors that interact with the SM sector only though irrelevant portal interactions, and I will analyze how they can be probed through terrestrial experiments and celestial observations.”
