Description

I will present the latest results from a search for dark matter annihilation in a large sample of Milky Way dwarf galaxies. Nearly 6 years of data from the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope are analyzed by weighting individual photons based on their spatial and spectral properties. Such searches are powerful enough to probe the relic abundance cross section for some dark matter masses. I will discuss the observational requirements necessary to discover annihilation in nearby dwarf galaxies.
