Title: Holes and Questions in Exoplanet Astrophysics
Abstract: The rapid growth of exoplanets has yielded thousands of discoveries, but there remains a focus and bias towards single, main sequence, sun-like stars. I will report on our efforts to expand to a greater variety of host stars, including binaries, white dwarfs and M-dwarfs. Through greater diversity we may better understand how and where planets form, and gain a better appreciation of the intrinsic star-planet connection. Finally, I will discuss how to leverage a sun-like star focus and next-generation instruments in the hunt for Earth analogs.
