Mihailo Backovic
Former member
Postdoc in CP3 from October 2014
I am involved in the following research direction:

Complementarity of dark matter searches in simplified models

Study of the complementarity between dark matter relic abundance, direct detection, indirect detection and collider searches applied to the dark matter simplified models. These models consider a dark matter candidate communicating to the quark (especially top) sector of the standard model via a bosonic or vectorial mediator.
