Up close and personal: Roni Peleg

Graphene-Info's personal interviews with industry professionals are a fun way of getting to know the people behind Graphene a bit better. This week's questions will be directed to...me! Roni Peleg, Graphene-Info's senior editor. I would like to take this opportunity and say hello to our readers, and invite people with ideas, questions or comments to feel free to contact the Graphene-Info team.  

Also, If you are a graphene professional of any kind and wish to be featured, contact us here

Roni Peleg, Graphene-Info's senior editor: The way I see it, my job is to make sure our readers get the most interesting, comprehensive and reliable information. So I spend time learning about graphene, reading researches and information from universities, companies and just about anywhere else I can get it. I sift through it to find materials for posts, then write them. I communicate with people from the industry and try to help with anything they need, as well as write in-depth articles about all sorts of graphene topics. I also track news regarding conferences, books, videos and more, so to make sure Graphene-Info stays current and updated. 

What was the last book you read? I must admit to reading the oh-so-popular "Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn. I've now started "Atlas Shrugged" (by Ayn Rand) for the sixth time. 

And the last movie you saw? The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Although I might have fallen asleep in the middle. Does it still count?

Tell us a couple of things you have on your desk at work: Giant pretzels, pop tarts (anyone sense a theme?..), my water bottle, and Ron's huge beer glass that performs as a tea cup.  

What’s your favorite food? I LOVE Indian food, and can't live without chocolate. But with a gun to my head, pizza is perhaps my favorite. Life is full of tough choices.  

What was your latest travel destination? Belgrade, Serbia. Beatiful place! 

What was the last music CD you listened to? "Images and Words" by Dream Theater, one of my favorites. 

What is the object you'd most like to 3D print? I know it's probably not the best use of technology, but printing chocolate could be great. Oh, and keys - I keep losing mine.... 

Who would you most like to sit next to on a long flight? (dead or alive): Winston Churchill on one side and Freddy Mercury on the second. And Chuck Norris! 

Q: What are you most excited about regarding graphene in the future? I want to see graphene in everything. Literally. I think it's such an amazing material with so many possibilities and potential, and I really want to see it do well and revolutionize whole industries. I'm excited for it to make water treatment cheap and simple so all the world can enjoy clean water.
