We do not understand what makes up our Universe. Precision observations of the CMB and other

cosmological observations show clearly that conventional matter only accounts for about one-fifth of

the total matter content of the Universe. Thus the dominant component consists of dark matter with

largely unknown properties. In this talk, I'll explain how we can leverage our understanding of the

dynamics in the early Universe to get additional insights into the properties of dark matter. These

results inform a large experimental and observational program that aims to deepen our understanding

of dark matter. I'll highlight a few of the experimental directions and discuss their potential.
