Dr. Nessim Daniel Bar Ilan University

The laboratory of Dr. Gilbert Daniel Nessim at Bar Ilan University (Israel) focuses on the synthesis of nanostructures using state-of-the-art chemical vapor deposition equipment. Besides the main expertise in the fabrication of carbon-based nanostructures such as carbon nanotubes and graphene, the lab is focusing strongly on new non-carbon 2D-layered materials such as sulfides and phosphides. The scientific focus is to better understand the complex growth mechanisms of these nanostructures, to possibly functionalize them to tune their properties, and to integrate them to fabricate innovative devices. A special focus is put on the development of batteries, supercapacitors, and fuel cells through collaborations with other INREP members.


Dr. Nessim joined the faculty of chemistry at Bar Ilan University in 2010 as lecturer and was promoted senior lecturer with tenure in 2014. He holds a Ph.D in Materials Science and Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), an MBA from INSEAD (France), and Masters in Electrical Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano and from the Ecole Centrale Paris (ECP, within the Erasmus/TIME program). To date he has over 30 publications in high impact factor journals and has presented at international conferences as keynote and invited speaker. Prior to his Ph.D, Dr. Nessim spent a decade in the high-tech industry and consulting across Europe, USA, and Israel.
