​The discovery of neutrino mass and oscillations have opened an intense field of study in the properties of neutrinos and their role in the Universe. The Daya Bay reactor experiment recently observed the oscillation of antineutrinos over kilometer-long baselines and has opened the window to the study of CP violation in the lepton sector. The search for neutrinoless double beta decay with CUORE will test if neutrinos are their own antiparticles and probe the effective Majorana mass of neutrinos. New experiments are getting underway to study neutrino oscillation at short and long distances and search for signs of new physics in the neutrino sector. I will discuss recent results and future prospects for neutrino studies with reactor neutrinos and nuclear beta decay.
