About

My name is Chris Dessert. A copy of my current (May 2018) CV is here. I did my undergraduate work in physics and mathematics at the University of Texas at Austin advised by Can Kilic and am currently working on my Ph.D. in physics at the University of Michigan.

I’m interested in the nature of dark matter from a phenomenological perspective. It composes about 80% of the matter in the universe and we have no idea what it is! I want to know, so I’ve been working in this area. You can read more on my research page.
