Erik Hogenbirk's research forms part of the quest to uncover what particles dark matter consists of. One model that offers a possible explanation is the Weakly Interacting Massive Particle (WIMP) model. Hogenbirk investigates that model using observations conducted with XENON1T, the most sensitive dark matter detector in the world, as well as XAMS, a setup in Amsterdam that works in a similar way.
