Description

In weak-scale theories of beyond the Standard Model physics, particle dark matter is ubiquitous. This is for good reason as observations point towards TeV-scale dark matter with weak-strength interactions. One promising way to search of this type of dark matter is via production at hadron colliders. In this talk I will discuss strategies for searching for dark matter at colliders and present projections on the sensitivity of colliders to simplified models and to neutralino dark matter.
