Research interests in our research group

Our neutrino physics group concentrates on phenomenological and experimental research of neutrino oscillations. At present, the main scientific goals of neutrino oscillation physics are the still open questions of neutrino mass hierarchy and leptonic CP violation. We are involved in studies that aim at building and operating the next generation oscillation experiments to resolve these questions and determine the values of other relevant parameters  and thereby shed light to the origin of the mass spectrum of neutrinos and other elementary particles. Our group participates in two major neutrino experiments, the accelerator experiment DUNE (Fermilab/Homestake, USA) and the reactor experiment JUNO (Jiangmen, China).
