Speaker: Venkatesh Veeraraghavan (The University of Alabama) Title: Recent neutrinoless double beta decay results from EXO-200 experiment Abstract: An open question within the standard model of particle physics is whether neutrinos are their own antiparticles. Several experiments are engaged in answering this question by conducting a search for neutrinoless double beta decay. I will present
