Title: Exploring Exoplanet Atmospheres in the JWST Era 

Abstract:With the successful launch and commencement of science operations of JWST, the characterization of exoplanet atmospheres has entered a new era. In this talk, I will first give an overview of the exciting programs that has and will be executed by JWST in cycle 1, and then go in-depth into a few of those programs, including discussing the key science results from the Transiting Exoplanet Early Release Science Program and the General Observer program targeting the mysterious sub-Neptune, GJ 1214b. These programs showcase the power of JWST's high precision and extended wavelength range in revealing atmospheric composition, thermal structure, and the presence and characteristics of clouds and hazes.
