Abstract

After a long period of measurements pursued by several experimental efforts, neutrino oscillations have emerged as the most robust explanation to the observed flavor transition of neutrinos produced in the sun, the earth atmosphere, and from man-made sources. An important part of my research has been devoted to the quantication of the neutrino oscillation parameters in the three-neutrino framework. The future oscillation neutrino program is mainly devoted to the precise determination of the neutrino oscillation parameters targeting, in particular, the neutrino mass orderingand to establish whether the charge-parity symmetry is violated in the lepton sector (and to which extent). In particular, several experimental efforts at Fermilab, as for instance, theshort baseline program, NOvA and DUNE experiments, will play a paramount role in the precision era. Given the expected event discrimination power and energy resolution in argon TPCs (DUNE detector technology), subleading effects become relevant and these might be a `manifestation' of new physics. The main research interest focus on figuring out how to probe (and quantify) new physics effects with measurements at oscillation neutrino facilities and DUNE is an ambitious program that offers this opportunity. In particular, the near detector is to be defined offering some margin for theorist to propose particular signals to look for. At the pre-running stage, simulation of future long/short baseline experiments to make sensitivity studies are of particular interest. (AU)
