Description

The MiniBooNE experiment is a short baseline experiment designed to test whether the excess of $\bar{\nu}_e$ events observed in the LSND experiment is due to neutrino oscillations. If the LSND signal is due to neutrino oscillations it would imply Physics Beyond the Standard Model such as the existence of sterile neutrinos. In this talk I will briefly discuss the sterile neutrino oscillation models. I will summarize the oscillation results from MiniBooNE experiment as well as some intriguing recent results from reactor and gallium solar neutrino calibration experiments which are sensitive to the same parameter space. Finally, I will conclude with a future outlook.
