If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Annelies Mortier.

In this talk I will discuss how asteroseismology – the study of stars by observation of their oscillations – is opening new possibilities to constrain stellar evolution theory and how it is playing an important role in the characterisation of newly discovered exoplanet systems. In addition to mentioning the importance of studies of our own star, the Sun, I will review some of the discoveries made by the NASA Kepler Mission, and then finish by discussing the exciting prospects offered by the recently launched NASA Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), including a look at some of its first results.
