Title: Searching for light dark matter in strong gravity environments

Abstract: With no discovery of WIMPs to date, attention is turning
towards lighter mass (sub eV) candidates for dark matter such as the
axion. I will describe work to look for signatures from such light
particles in strong gravity environments. In particular, I will discuss
the distinctive density patterns that can form by their accretion onto
black holes, and how their presence as an additional cooling channel may
leave an imprint on neutron star mergers.
