Angela Altomare received a degree in physics cum laude in 1988. From 1989 to 2001, she was a Researcher at IRMEC (now IC, Institute of Crystallography), CNR, Bari, Italy. During that period, in 1999, she received the AIC Prize for “The activity and the original and innovative research results in the field of crystallographic methodologies, either theoretical or applicative and for the work on the association activities.” She became a Staff researcher from 2001 to 2006 and then a Staff Senior Researcher at IC, CNR, Bari, in 2006. Fron 2008 to 2010, she became a Scientific Responsible of PRIN MIUR Project. Dr. Altomare has acquired high scientific competence in the development of crystallographic methodologies aimed at structural characterization of crystalline compounds (single crystal and microcrystalline powders). The field of research, with both theoretical and applicative interest, covers a broad spectrum of applications (organic, inorganic, technologically interesting compounds, drugs, etc.). She has been invited speaker as well as chairman of microsymposia at numerous national and international congresses and schools. She has worked as a referee in different times by request of editors of international reviews of crystallography. She is coauthor of nine important crystallographic computing programs, widely used by national and international scientific community. She has been invited to submit two chapters for the International Tables for Crystallography: Volume H, about powder diffraction. The research activity has been referenced in about 90 scientific publications in international reviews (2 chapters of books), several communications, and/or participations in congresses.
