Title: Synergy between asteroseismology and exoplanet science: an outlook

Abstract: Over the past decade, space-based asteroseismology has played an important role in the characterization of exoplanet-host stars and their planetary systems. The future looks even brighter, with space missions such as TESS and PLATO ready to take on this legacy. In this talk, I will start by reviewing current key synergies between asteroseismology and exoplanetary science, such as the precise determination of radii and ages of host stars, the measurement of spin-orbit alignment, and the determination of orbital eccentricities via asterodensity profiling. This will be followed by an outlook on future synergies, namely, the precise characterization of super-Earths/Neptunes orbiting solar-type stars and the prospect of conducting a populational study of giant planets around evolved stars. I will conclude with an overview of the asteroseismic yield of host stars expected for TESS and a look at the mission's first-light results.
