Neutrinos play a major role in modern particle physics and open the possibility of studying Beyond the Standard Model physics through neutrino precision measurements, while Dark Matter is still one of the missing pieces of the Standard Model of particle physics. This PhD project proposes to explore the connection between neutrinos andDark Matter, which can have profound consequences in the physics of both particles.In particular, part of this project consists in formulating models that implement thisinteraction at different levels, understanding how the phenomenology of neutrinosand Dark Matter are affected and constraining such effects with recent data.
