Abstract
A vast number of independent astrophysical and cosmological observations suggest that the dominant form of matter in the Universe, known as dark matter, is neither luminous nor baryonic. Despite nearly half a decade of research, the non-gravitational nature of dark matter, if any, remains a mystery. Motivated primarily by preferred theoretical extensions of the Standard Model and a relatively simple production mechanism, the weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP) has long been considered to be among the most appealing dark matter particle candidates. This dissertation is comprised of largely independent works that focus on understanding and constraining vari...
