The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) will be an international observatory for neutrino science. Primary science drivers are the discovery of CP violation in the neutrino sector, the detection of neutrinos from supernovae, and the search for baryon number violation. DUNE will consist of two neutrino detectors placed in the world’s most intense neutrino beam. The near detector will record particle interactions near the source of the beam at Fermilab close to Chicago. A second, much larger, far detector operating with liquid-argon will be installed more than a kilometer underground in South Dakota. Several mid-size liquid-argon detectors at Fermilab and CERN will soon demonstrate the potential of the cutting-edge liquid-argon technology employed for DUNE. I will give an overview of the current status and future discovery potential of the DUNE programme.

Professor of Particle Physics at the University of Manchester. He studied at Bonn University and received his PhD at the Technical University of Munich with a fellowship from the Max-Planck Institute. During his career, he has contributed to a range of collider physics experiments, including ZEUS at DESY, OPAL at CERN, and Dzero at Fermilab. He served as Spokesperson of Dzero from 2009 to 2011. Over the last decade he has shifted his focus to neutrino physics where he has worked on several experiments and was recently elected as co-Spokesperson of the DUNE Collaboration. He has received a Royal Society Wolfson Award, was Heisenberg Fellow of the German Research Foundation and was recently awarded the 2018 Chadwick Medal of the Institute of Physics for his contributions to Higgs and neutrino physics. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society.
