The Precision Reactor Oscillation and SPECTrum experiment, PROSPECT, is a reactor antineutrino experiment located at the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR). The detector is deployed on surface with minimal overburden at very short baseline from the highly enriched uranium reactor core. With this configuration, PROSPECT detector can be used to explore different variety of physics topics, from reactor to BSM physics.

This talk will summarize PROSPECT’s latest results, including recent sterile neutrino oscillation analyses, measurement of the $^{235}$U antineutrino spectrum, and a dedicated search for boosted sub-GeV dark matter. It will also discuss future plans to perform improved physics measurements with a second-generation detector, called PROSPECT-II.
