      Neutrino oscillations with IceCube DeepCore 45m

      The IceCube Neutrino Observatory is a pioneering, cubic kilometre-sized neutrino telescope located at the geographic South Pole. Since its discovery of the astrophysical neutrino flux, IceCube has continued to provide invaluable knowledge about both potential neutrino sources and neutrino properties at the GeV-PeV scale through its detection of neutrino interactions via Cherenkov radiation in the optically clear, deep ice. In this talk I will discuss the most recent measurements of neutrino oscillations with DeepCore. I will also describe our progress on a near-future detector extension, the IceCube Upgrade, which will deploy new optical modules into the ice along with improved calibration devices to further enhance the performance of the IceCube Neutrino Observatory.
