This event is part of the HEE Seminar Series.

NOvA is a long-baseline accelerator neutrino oscillation experiment that uses the NuMI beam originating at Fermilab to study muon neutrino disappearance and muon neutrino to electron neutrino appearance. These oscillation modes give NOvA sensitivity to measure the remaining unknown parameters governing neutrino oscillations- the octant of $\theta_{23}$, the ordering of neutrino masses and the value of CP violation in neutrinos. In this talk, I will describe the NOvA experiment and present results from two years of data taking, doubling the exposure of out first results.
