Abstract: Neutrino physics is entering the precision era, and the current and future neutrino oscillation experiments will be sensitive to new physics beyond the standard model (SM). A model-independent way of studying new physics in neutrino oscillation experiments is provided by the framework of nonstandard interactions (NSI). In this talk, the speaker will first show a hint of NSI may have been seen in the current NOvA and T2K data, and then he will discuss sensitivities to SM and NSI parameters at future long-baseline neutrino experiments like DUNE, T2HK and T2HKK. Detection of NSI in solar neutrino oscillations with Hyper-Kamiokande and JUNO will also be shown and discussed.
