The Short-Baseline Near Detector (SBND) will be a 112 ton liquid argon time projection chamber situated 110 m downstream of the Fermilab Booster Neutrino Beam target. SBND is the near detector of the Short-Baseline Neutrino programme which has been designed to test the eV-scale sterile neutrino hypothesis to high precision. Due to proximity of the detector to the beam target, SBND will observe millions of neutrino interactions and therefore be able to produce a range of high statistic inclusive and exclusive neutrino-argon cross section measurements. Alongside this, SBND will be capable of performing multiple searches for beyond the standard model physics such as searches for light Dark Matter. This talk will summarise the current status of SBND and the physics capabilities of the programme.
