Dark matter and neutrino masses in SUSY models
Chiara Arina, Michele Lucente

We study supersymmetric models in which modifications of the neutrino sector, to include a mass term, are connected to the dark matter sector. We analyse if the dark matter particles can be good dark matter candidates by considering cosmological and astrophysical constraints, as well as if the new neutrino sector can accommodate neutrino data.

Neutrino Masses as a Key to New Physics
Marco Drewes, Yannis Georis, Juraj Klaric, Michele Lucente

We study the perspectives to probe the origin of neutrino mass with existing or near future experiments. The focus lies on low scale seesaw scenarios involving heavy right handed neutrinos. We are also interested in cosmological implications, such as leptogenesis or connections to Dark Matter.
Testable Baryogenesis
Marco Drewes, Yannis Georis, Juraj Klaric, Michele Lucente

We study the perspectives to probe the origin of baryonic matter in the observable universe with laboratory experiments. Currently the focus lies on low scale leptogenesis scenarios. A key element of our approach lies in the description of CP violating nonequilibrium processes in the early universe from first principles of nonequilibrium quantum field theory.
