Miguel A. Sánchez-Conde

[Slovenia, Aug 2015]

 Welcome!

 I’m a ‘Talento’ Fellow at the Institute for Theoretical Physics (IFT UAM/CSIC) and the Department of Theoretical Physics, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.

My current research mainly focuses on the search for dark matter with gamma rays. 
I am a member of the Fermi Large Area Telescope Collaboration (former coordinator of the dark matter science working group).
I am also a member of the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) Consortium and former member of the MAGIC Collaboration.

My work also focuses on understanding the structural properties of dark matter halos and subhalos, their formation and evolution over cosmic time, and the implications for dark matter searches.
