Description Please note, the seminar will be held via Zoom Connections will begin at 12:45 with the seminar beginning at 13:00.

If Dark Matter is an electroweak gauge singlet, it cannot interact with the standard model via these interactions, thereby requiring the existence of so-called portal couplings. The three renormalizable portal couplings are the Higgs portal, the vector portal, and the neutrino portal.
In this talk, we investigate the neutrino portal to Dark Matter and inspect the viable production mechanisms and different experimental constraints on the resulting parameter space.
