Description:

Nuclear reactors have long been a boon to neutrino research — indeed, neutrinos were discovered at a commercial reactor facility. While reactor antineutrinos have been instrumental in establishing the neutrino oscillation framework, they also present some long-standing tensions with which the neutrino community will be forced to reckon over the next decade-plus. In this talk, I present the anomalies that lurk in the reactor antineutrino data and discuss the ways in which these might be resolved.
