Description

Present and future neutrino experiments will search for CP violation in the lepton sector, detect neutrinos from a galactic supernova, and search for evidence of sterile neutrinos. I will discuss two strands of work aimed at maximizing the success of these experiments: on DUNE, developing the far detector trigger system is vital to achieving the physics goals of the experiment; while on the SBN project, neutrino cross section uncertainties are a major systematic in the sterile neutrino oscillation analysis.
