Observing Exoplanet Atmospheres

Lisa Esteves

University of Toronto

The confirmation, follow-up, and atmospheric characterization of a large number of super-Earths and smaller planets will be among the main challenges facing exoplanet researchers in the next decades. In this talk I will discuss the current state of exoplanet research and in particular what our research team is doing to study exoplanet atmospheres using ground- and space-based telescopes. We will also discuss what the future of exoplanet research holds and how we are going to get there.
