Seminar title: Neutrinos as gateway to new physics

Seminar abstract: Neutrino oscillation studies have brought neutrinos to the center of particle physics. I briefly review the status of precision neutrino results and comment on the theoretical options for the origin of their mass. The latter may be closely linked to basic drawbacks of the Standard Model such as the dark matter and flavour problems.

Short bio/introduction of speaker:
He earned a PhD in Theoretical Physics from Syracuse University (New York, 1982). In January 1983 he joined the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Oxfordshire, UK, as a Research Associate. In 1986 he moved to Spain, joining as a visiting professor at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, and subsequently IFIC (Instituto de Física Corpuscular) at the University of Valencia in 1987. He is currently Ad Honorem Profesor at the Spanish Council for Scientific Research CSIC. He is known for his numerous contributions to theoretical astroparticle and high energy physics, especially neutrino physics. He earned the Spanish Iberdrola Science & Technology Prize for Theoretical Physics in 1999, the Humboldt Prize in 2002, the Medal of the Mexican Physical Society, 2014 and the Mexico Science and Technology Prize, 2018
