Abstract: Symmetries surround us–but the universe we live in is actualized through the virtue of their breaking. The study of CP violation plays an essential role in understanding the Baryon asymmetry in the universe. However the Standard Model of particle physics falls short of providing an explanation for the observed asymmetry, and so we look at theories beyond the Standard Model for plausible and viable Baryogenesis scenarios. In this talk, I present a brief overview of the ideas and attempts that have been made to account for the overwhelming domination of matter over antimatter in nature, and review the role of BSM physics in electroweak Baryogenesis.
