    Description: Title: Two new avenues in dark matter indirect detection

    Abstract: Indirect detection is one of the major ways to search for dark matter. In this talk, I will introduce two new techniques. Firstly, I will show how telescopes with ~ 0.1% energy resolution can exploit the Doppler shift of sharp photon features arising from dark matter interactions and separate the signal from background. Although the technique is general, I will give an example of this search strategy with the 3.5 keV line. In the second half of my talk, I will show how limits from the searches for very high energy photons can be used to constrain dark matter interactions. As an example, I will compare these limits with the dark matter interpretation of the "IceCube excess neutrinos".

    Description: Title: Explore QCD splitting function with CMS open data

    Abstract: In November 2014, the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider announced the CMS Open Data project. To our knowledge, this is the first time in the history of particle physics that research-grade collision data has been made publicly available. It open an enormous opportunity to the particle physics community. We use the public data explore the QCD splitting function by studying 2-prong substructure of jets. We find good agreement between results obtained from the CMS Open Data and those obtained from parton shower generators, and we also compare to analytic jet substructure calculations.

    Description: Title: The last gasp of dark matter effective field theory

    Abstract: The effective field theory (EFT) parametrization for dark matter (DM) searches at colliders has become notoriously unpopular, due to its incapability of describing new physics with light mediators. Simplified models have taken over. In this talk, I will argue that the two points of view are instead complementary, and discuss large classes of theories where the EFT is indeed necessary to organize DM tests at colliders. Consequences for direct and indirect DM searches will be discussed.
