Fermion Portal Dark Matter
Abstract: I discuss a class of simplified dark matter models in which dark matter couples directly with a mediator and a SM fermion. This class of Fermion Portal dark matter models has very rich phenomenology in collider searches, as well as in direct and indirect detection experiments, while allowing for self-consistent comparison of the sensitivities of various search strategies. I present the current experimental constraints on the model parameter space for Dirac fermion, Majorana fermion and complex scalar dark matter cases of the Fermion Portal framework for both light quark and charged lepton couplings. I also discuss prospects for future experiments to study these models.
