"Dark" Series Colloquium 4# All the dark we can not see - the state-of-the art in direct searches for particle dark matter

by Prof. Laura Baudis (University of Zurich, Switzerland)

Wednesday, June 23, 2021 from to (Asia/Shanghai)
One of the major challenges of modern physics is to decipher the nature of dark matter.  It could be made of new elementary particles with allowed masses and interaction strengths spanning an enormous range.  Among these, particles with masses in the MeV-TeV range could be directly observed via scatters with atomic nuclei or electrons in ultra-low background detectors operated deep underground.  After an introduction to the dark matter problem, I will discuss the most promising direct detection techniques, addressing their current and future science reach, as well as their complementarity.

Laura Baudis is a Full Professor at the University of Zurich, Switzerland. She has played a leading role in a couple of leading underground experiments. She has been the co-spokesperson of the XENON experiment until 2017, collaboration board chair of the XENON until Dec 2019, she has been the DARWIN spokesperson until now. Also, she served on many academic committees, including but not limited to, CERN Scientific Policy Committee, associate editor for EJP-C; editorial board of JoPG; PSI Research Committee for Particle Physics, and LEGEND steering committee.
She completed her Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Physics in Timisoara, Romania. Her Ph.D. was awarded by the University of Heidelberg in Germany in 1999. From 2000 to 2003, she conducted her postdoc research at Stanford University in the US. In 2003, she professed at the University of Florida, Gainesville. She moved to RWTH-Aachen in Germany as a W3 professor in 2006. From 2007 to the present, she has been a professor at the University of Zurich, Switzerland.
She can speak five languages fluently: English, French, German, Italian, and Romanian.
