Nu Flavour: Novel Effective Field Theory and Simplified Model Approaches to Beyond-the-Standard Model Flavour Physics and Neutrino Phenomenology

Project description

Research could answer complex questions plaguing beyond-the-Standard-Model flavour and neutrino physics

Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the Nu Flavour project aims to formalise mathematical frameworks for studying beyond-the-Standard-Model flavour and neutrino physics in a rigorous, model-independent manner. To achieve this, researchers will apply the all-order geometric formulation of the Standard Model Effective Field theory, the so-called GeoSMEFT, to define neutrino masses and mixings from existing data sets. Furthermore, researchers will study simplified models of flavourful leptoquarks and other models that are invariant under residual family symmetries based on data from active neutrino experiments worldwide, including the IceCube Neutrino Observatory. The ultimate goal is to provide concrete bounds on realistic models that can explain the vast number of open questions in neutrino and flavour physics.
