The development of novel material platforms with highly controlled complex material strucutres and the availability of new experimental tool sets enable the rapid advancement in the physics and chemistry of reduced-dimensional systems. Many unique physical properties of low dimensional correlated systems are generally understood by considering enhanced quantum effects and increased correlations due to the reduction of available phase space. We plan to explore these novel emergent phenomena in strongly correlated systems in mesoscopic scaled structures. The major research efforts are: (i) growth of strongly correlated systems in mesoscopic scales (vdW epitaxy, hybrid CVD & PVD and electrochemical intercalation process); (ii) fabrication mesoscopic/nanoscale device structures (resistless lithography, contact engineering, electrolyte gating); (iii) development of new hybrid experimental tools (transport-optics, micromechanical-transport, nanoscale calorimetric, scanning probe-optical-transport);
