      Science Talk: Dark Matter Direct Detection Theory—From Extensions of the Standard Model to Observables 30m

      What is the nature of so-called Dark Matter and does it interact with regular matter except through gravity? Direct detection experiments aim to answer this question. Yet, propagating measurements (or constraints) to the fundamental theory requires bridging several scales - from target nucleus to individual nucleons to the level of quarks & gluons and beyond. In this talk I describe the methods used, assumptions made and challenges faced by the bridging of scales to address implications of measurements.
