Title: Bound State Effects on Dark Matter Annihilation 

Abstract: I will discuss non-perturbative dark matter bound state effects and their impact on the dark matter search. The discussion will be in the context of two dark sector models interacting with the standard model particles through the vector and Higgs portals, respectively. Including the dark matter annihilation channels through bound states, we will be able to explore a much wider range of the parameter space, and set much stronger constraints based on the existing dark matter indirect detection and CMB data.
