This project aims to compute the new contributions to the muon anomalous magnetic moment ($g_\mu-2$) of a new extention of the Standard Model where neutrino masses and mixings are dinamically generated by a dark light sector and that can explain the low energyelectron-like event excess observed by the MiniBooNE experiment. We will also analyze the process $\mu \to e \gamma$ in the context of this model, determine the current experimental constraints and examine future perspectives. (AU)
