The observed exoplanet population unveiled by recent detection
programs is billions of years old, distinctly separated in time from the
planet formation process that only lasted ~10-100 Myr. I will argue that
atmospheric escape has been one of the key evolutionary drivers shaping
the exoplanet population we observed today. By understanding how these
planet evolve in time, I will show we can place some intriguing
constraints on how they formed.
