Event Description

The advent of the Gaia era has led to potentially revolutionary understanding of dark matter dynamics in our galaxy, which has important consequences for direct detection experiments. In this talk, I will discuss the effects of various dark matter substructures inferred from the Gaia data on possible direct detection signals at next-generation experiments. In particular, I will focus on the implications of the so-called Gaia sausage for the dark matter-nuclear interactions, as well as the unique modulation signatures of several possible streams associated with dark matter-electron interactions.
