The MINOS and MINOS -Plus long-baseline neutrino experiments operated at the Fermi Laboratory between 2003 and 2016. Both phases of the experiment comprised a pair of kiloton-scale steel-scintillator detectors, situated 1km and 735km along the central axis of the NuMI accelerator neutrino beam. MINOS operated in a low-energy beam configuration until 2012; MINOS -Plus subsequently ran in the upgraded medium-energy NuMI beam. Both MINOS and MINOS -Plus made precise measurements of neutrino oscillations, and also performed searches for new phenomena beyond the standard model of neutrino oscillations, such as light sterile neutrinos. While the MINOS /MINOS-Plus data-taking now over, the data analysis is continuing. In this talk, I will present the latest results on neutrino oscillations, combining data from both phases of the experiment. I will also discuss a recent joint analysis of the accelerator data from MINOS /MINOS-Plus with the reactor data from the Daya Bay and Bugey-3 experiments, which has yielded strong constraints on light sterile neutrinos.
