Next questions in neutrino physics and the NOvA and DUNE experiments

Non-zero neutrino mass brings with it new complexity in the neutrino sector, and major questions surrounding neutrino masses and mixing remain unanswered. Among the unknowns are the ordering of the neutrino masses, key details of flavor mixing, and whether neutrinos respect CP symmetry. NOvA, a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment sited along Fermilab's NuMI neutrino beam, will address these questions and more. After a review of the physics context, I will discuss NOvA's experimental design, physics program, and recent oscillation results. I will also introduce the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), an ambitious next-generation project for neutrino science and nucleon decay searches.
