Low-dimensional materials exhibit extraordinary intrinsic properties as well as emergent phenomena due to nanoscale confinement effects. Their intrinsic properties can be modulated extrinsically by applying external stimuli such as inducing multi-dimensional structures and controlling interfaces in nanomaterial-based architectures. In addition, data-driven approaches provide complementary tools to understand the fundamental structure-property relations across many length scales. In this talk, I will discuss low-dimensional material engineering approaches including 1) mechanical instability-driven 2D materials engineering for plasmonics and optoelectronics, 2) low-dimensional interfacial engineering for controlling charge carrier transport, and 3) data-driven approaches for structure-property optimization of soft systems. Finally, I will discuss my future vision at Princeton, working at the nexus of low-dimensional material engineering and multi-physical interactions.
