Up close and personal: Gilbert Daniel Nessim

This week's Graphene-info personal interview features Andrew T. Smaha. If you wish to be featured, contact us here.

  • Gilbert Daniel Nessim, Nano Scientist, well, I mean scientist of average size focused on the synthesis of nanostructures such as 1-D (CNTs, CNFs, NWs) and 2D (graphene, TM dichalcogenides, etc.). I run the lab for the synthesis of nanostructures in the chemistry department at Bar Ilan University, Israel.
  • What was the last book you read? I am currently reading a few books on TRIZ, a technique for inventive problem solving, the last one being The ideal result from Jack Hipple
  • Tell us a couple of things you have on your desk at work: Too much stuff on my desk! Once in a while, I rearrange but the second principle of thermodynamics is against me...
  • What’s your favorite food? Pizza by far (I mean real Italian pizza)
  • What was your latest travel destination? Italy (I needed a good pizza desperately)
  • What was the last music CD you listened to? Sorry, not listening much to music - I am always for lectures on various topics from which I can grow
  • What is the object you'd most like to 3D print? The soul
  • Who would you most like to sit next to on a long flight? (dead or alive): The Ramchal (Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto - outstanding man of piety and one of the greatest Kabbalist of all times)
  • What are you most excited about regarding Graphene? The challenges related to its synthesis. As far as applications are concerned, I think the jury is still out
