SBND (Short-Baseline Near Detector) is a 112-ton liquid argon TPC neutrino detector under construction in the Fermilab Booster Neutrino Beam. Together with MicroBooNE and ICARUS-T600 detectors, SBND will search for short baseline neutrino oscillations in the 1 eV 2 mass range. SBND will also perform detailed studies of the physics of neutrino-argon interactions, thanks to a data sample of millions of electron and muon neutrino interactions. Finally, SBND plays a vital role in the on-going R& D

We will discuss the physics program, with a particular focus on the neutrino cross-section measurements and search for BSM physics as well as discuss the detector design and its current status.
