New Physics Searches at DUNE and HyperK

Two key long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments have been proposed to study the nature of neutrinos, and pin down elements of the leptonic mixing matrix, such as the CP-violating phase. Additionally, these experiments are capable of searching for new physics phenomena. In this talk, I will discuss the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) and the Hyper-Kamiokande (Hyper-K) experiment, and their ability to search for two specific extensions to the standard, three-flavor oscillation framework: the existence of weaker-than-weak, non-standard neutrino interactions, and the existence of a fourth, light, sterile neutrino. I will focus on the two experiments' capabilities independently, but will also comment on how complementarity may aid the search for these new physics scenarios.
