The panelists: Dr. Jonathan Cornell is a postdoctoral fellow at McGill. He works on WIMP dark matter theory and the phenomenology of direct dark matter searches. Dr. Ben Zitzer is a postdoctoral fellow at McGill. He works on the indirect detection of dark matter using the VERITAS gamma-ray observatory.
