Title: SNO+, THEIA, and DUNE: a broad program for advanced neutrino physics

Abstract: Over the last several decades, neutrino experimentation has led to the discovery of neutrino oscillations, non-zero neutrino masses, and the precise determination of several of the parameters that govern neutrino mixing. The next-generation of neutrino detectors will unravel further mysteries, helping to explain the matter-antimatter asymmetry, the dynamics of supernovae, the processes that power our sun, and many other fundamental features of our universe. In this talk, I will discuss my work on the SNO+ neutrino experiment, neutrino detector R&D, and the EOS technology demonstrator in order to motivate a research program focused on the DUNE and THEIA long baseline neutrino detectors. I will detail the broad range of physics achievable with these powerful experiments.
