Exploring Small Worlds Beyond the Solar System:
Sub-neptunes, Super-Earths, and Exo-Earths
The exciting progress on the detection and characterization of small extrasolar planets is opening a new window on sub-neptunian worlds, providing our first glance into the diversity of a planet population that is not well represented in the Solar System. In this talk I will combine our recent results on exoplanet population statistics with our work on the properties of individual planets (including GJ1214b, TRAPPIST-1bcdefg, and Proxima b) to explore the small exoplanet population, with particular focus on the characterization of habitable zone rocky planets, and some of the astrophysical challenges to their characterization.
