Probing Fundamental Physics Using Primordial Nucleosynthesis Considerations

I will discuss a new era of precision Big Bang Nucleosynthesis and the potential to use this to constrain new physics such as weak-sector physics and/or the lepton numbers of the universe. I will discuss my work on sterile neutrinos of various masses and mixing angles and their effect on light element abundance predictions.
