Planetary Systems around White Dwarfs

Planetary systems are prevalent around main sequence stars but little is known about their fate beyond the main sequence stage. In this talk, I will show different evidence that planetary systems can be present and active around white dwarfs. I will also discuss new opportunities to study planetary systems around white dwarfs from current and future facilities, including Gaia, TESS, and JWST.
