Low dimensional materials exhibit interesting properties owing to the reduced electronic degrees of freedom and their sensitivity towards the external perturbations. Our goal is to develop new theoretical and numerical methodologies to explain the exotic properties in reduced dimensions and to predict possible ways to expedite the realization of futuristic electronic devices based on these class of materials.
