The interplay between dark matter and black holes remains largely unexplored. Dark matter can in principle be *made of* black holes, as long as these are primordial, i.e. they are formed in the very early universe. Dark matter can also *accumulate around* black holes, and modify the rich phenomenology exhibited by these objects. After an overview of the status of dark matter searches, the speaker will discuss the prospects for detecting primordial black holes or robustly ruling them out as dark matter candidates. He will then discuss the prospects for characterizing and identifying dark matter using gravitational waves, covering a wide range of dark matter candidate types and signals.

“Copernicus Webinar and Colloquium Series”: To promote scientific discussions during this pandemic, they are organizing an online seminar series, i.e. Copernicus Webinar Series, seeking the most outstanding speakers to introduce innovative ideas and important progress in the field of gravity and cosmology. This series is named after the famous Polish Astronomer, Nicolaus Copernicus, whose discovery eventually marked the dawn of modern science.
