Most of Liliya William's work has to do with dark matter: measuring the amount, the spatial distribution on a wide range of astrophysical scales, from sub-galactic to super-cluster. Detailed knowledge of dark matter distribution will enable us to place constraints on the physical properties of dark matter particles. Another aspect of her research has to do with the dynamics of dark matter in galaxies and clusters.

In the last decade we have learned much about dark matter halos from numerical computer simulations, however, understanding the physics behind these results is still an open issue.
