Title: New searches for dark matter with neutron stars, exploding white dwarfs, and multiscatter events at underground experiments

Description: As the hunt for dark matter continues, it has been noted that certain kinds of dark matter (1) turn neutron stars into black holes, (2) cause white dwarfs to explode, and (3) leave a track of many events in underground experiments. I will discuss the theoretical motivation for these kinds of dark matter, along with methods for using compact stars to discover dark matter.
