Speaker: Jeter Hall, Faculty Candidate (Research Associate, Fermilab)

There is a large body of evidence that ~85% of the matter in the Universe is in the form of cold, non-baryonic dark matter.  I describe how terrestrial particle detectors are searching for clues about the nature of the dark matter.  I focus on two leading experimental techniques, current results, and challenges in searching for an unknown form of matter.
