Roberto Flammini studied physics at the University of Rome "La Sapienza" in Rome, Italy and obtained his Ph.D. degree in 2002 at the University of Paris XI in Orsay, Paris, France, in solid state physics. Since 2002, Flammini has been serving as Postdoc at the Chemistry Department of the same university and at the Istituto di Metodologie Inorganiche e Plasmi of the National Research Council (CNR-IMIP) in Rome, Italy, where he obtained a permanent position. Since 2010, Flammini served as an Associated Researcher at the National Laboratory of Frascati of the National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN-LNF) in Rome, Italy. His research expertise was concerned with photoemission, auger, resonant auger, X-ray absorption with synchrotron radiation as well as electron-ion and electron-ion-ion coincidence spectroscopy techniques by electron impact, for atomic, molecular, cluster and surface physics studies. In particular, his current interests include interaction of crystalline silicon nitride and metals, metal nitrides, metal silicides, and interaction of hydrogen and nitrogen atoms with silicon. Concerning molecular physics, his interests are currently focused on isomerization and elimination reactions, and fast fragmentation.
