Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) have been the target of cosmic ray experiments for decades. AMS-02 is the first experiment which can realistically probe WIMP annihilation signals in the antiproton channel. I will systematically reduce particle and astrophysical uncertainties which impact dark matter detection by using a wide collection of cosmic ray and accelerator data. Then, I will present a spectral search for dark annihilation in the AMS-02 antiproton data, and address recent claims of a darkmatter signal. Finally, I will show prospects for dark matter detection with antinuclei.
