Electron gases created by modulating the charge density near interfaces and surfaces of insulating SrTiO 3 offer a wide range of tunable behavior. Here, we utilize the nonlinear dielectric response of SrTiO 3 to electrostatically manipulate the spatial confinement of an electron gas relative to an interface, where scattering is enhanced. Magnetotransport measurements reveal that the electron gas can be tuned from weakly localized to classical transport regimes. This crossover in transport
