The LHC offers the best prospects for direct production of WIMP Dark Matter (DM) and gauge bosons arising from a dark sector beyond the Standard Model (SM). In particular, a neutral Z’{DM} boson mediating DM-SM interactions is a prime target for resonance searches, and its couplings can thereby be constrained within the broad context of mediator-based simplified DM models. In this poster I introduce the Z’{DM} phenomenology in the dilepton final state and present the latest bounds on the relevant simplified models imposed by searches for high mass dilepton resonances with the ATLAS detector.
