Title: Three Problems in Exoplanet Dynamics

Abstract:
(i) Are exoplanet systems flat? Laplace argued, correctly, that the small inclinations of planetary orbits implied that the solar system formed from a flat disk. I will review the direct and circumstantial evidence on whether extrasolar planetary systems are also flat and discuss the implications for planet formation.

Title: Robo-AO and the Rapid Transient Surveyor

Abstract:
As new large-scale astronomical surveys greatly increase the number of objects targeted and discoveries made, the requirement for efficient follow-up observations is crucial. Adaptive optics imaging, which compensates for the image-blurring effects of Earth's turbulent atmosphere, is essential for these surveys, but the scarcity, complexity and high demand of current systems limits their availability for following up large numbers of targets.
