I will first give a brief introduction to current observations, and the physical insight they provide for exoplanets, as well as highlighting some key issues facing the field. Following this, I will discuss modelling work we have done for both gas giant and terrestrial exoplanets.

For gas giants, I will explain the general circulation regime, predicted by simulations, and its implications for the planetary evolution, and in particular the planetary radii. I will then, time permitting, move to discussing mixing in the atmosphere for both gas-phase and condensate species. For terrestrial planets, I will discuss some of the consequences and implications of the tidal-locking expected for our current set of potentially habitable targets, and present results of convection permitting simulations for such planets.
