Dr. Miguel A. Sánchez-Conde, an ‘Atracción de Talento’ senior researcher at the Institute for Theoretical Physics (IFT) and UAM Department of Theoretical Physics, has been recently appointed convener of the Dark Matter and New Physics working group of the Fermi-LAT collaboration. This is the second time that Dr Sánchez-Conde will act as such, after a 2-years period back in 2014-15. 

Launched on June 11, 2008, the NASA Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope observes the cosmos using the highest-energy form of light. After these 12 years of operations, Fermi LAT has revolutionized our vision of the gamma-ray universe. Indeed, mapping the entire sky every three hours, Fermi provides an unique window into the most extreme phenomena of the universe, from gamma-ray bursts and black-hole jets to pulsars, supernova remnants, the origin of cosmic rays and the nature of the dark matter. 

 

Today, Fermi-LAT keeps leading the search of possible dark matter signals from space. A significant fraction of this search effort is being pursued at the UAM thanks to Dr Sánchez-Conde and his group. Our congratulations to our colleague for his renewal!
