The exoplanet revolution that began two decades ago has drastically changed our understanding of the formation of extra-solar systems. Today we face an extreme diversity and complexity of these systems that can only be understood through the intimate link that exists between the planets and their host stars. The understanding and the detection of the exoplanets must be made more and more in close collaboration between stellar and planetary physicists.
The aim of our team is to gather people of various expertises (exoplanets, stellar physics, Signal processing, instrumentation) to prepare and analyze the new projects in exoplanetsdetection and characterization (TESS, CHEOPS, PLATO, ARIEL, ESPRESSO, SPIROU, SPHERE+, E-ELT).
