Talk Summary

The Milky Way contains more than 5 times as much dark matter as regular matter. Exactly how this dark matter is distributed in our Galaxy will tell us a lot about its properties. In this talk I will review the evidence for dark matter, present some new results which suggest that it is clumpy, and discuss the implications.
