Roberto Mancini received a PhD in physics from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1983 and later worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Florida, specializing in atomic and radiation physics of high-energy density and astrophysical plasmas with emphasis on x-ray spectroscopy applications and multiobjective data analysis. He remained in Florida as a research faculty until 1993 and then went to the University of Nevada, Reno, where he became a full professor in 2003 and the T. J. McMinn Professor of Physics in 2017. He has been a visiting scientist at Sandia, Los Alamos, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories; the laboratory LULI, École Polytechnique, France; the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, Germany; and Imperial College London.
