Searching for a WIMP signal in the gamma-ray sky: Current status, results and challenges.
Indirect detection of dark matter is extremely important because it probes the same physics
that took place in the early universe leading to the observed relic abundance. I will focus
on the current state of dark matter annihilation searches, and latest results. In addition,
I will discuss on how these results fit in the broad picture of dark matter physics and what
are the key outstanding issues in this endeavor.
Refreshments will be served in CP 177 at 3:15 PM
