We study how planets can be detected around other stars and how the properties of those planets can be determined. We use data from facilities such as the TESS and Kepler satellites and various ground based telescopes to discover new planets and determine their physical and orbital parameters. We also study how planets form in the circumstellar disks during the early evolution of stellar systems. We construct theoretical models for planet formation and the evolution of planetary systems and planet-forming disks.
