Some of the most dramatic engineering feats accomplished with layered materials are enabled by properties that emerge only at the single or few-layer limit and are not found in bulk forms. I will discuss our efforts to elucidate useful emergent properties of monolayer and few-layer materials, including our predictions and several recent experimental observations of substantive electromechanical coupling in the form of piezoelectric1–3 and flexoelectric-like effects,4 unlike their bulk forms.

The discovery of quantum spin Hall effect engendered a new chapter of topological materials research in condensed matter physics and materials science. In this talk, I will introduce some of our recent theoretical works about the topological phases in 2D and 3D transition metal chalcogenides.
