Nathalie Reuter

Professor, Department of Chemistry  

Group leader

WoS Researcher ID: G-2037-2012

Nathalie received her PhD in Theoretical Chemistry in 1999 from the Université de Lorraine (Nancy, France). Her thesis work focused on hybrid QM/MM methods and was done in collaboration between the lab of Jean-Louis Rivail in Nancy and the group led by Martin Karplus at University of Strasbourg. In 2000 she joined  the group of Walter Thiel as a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute für Kohlenforschung (Mülheim-an-der-Ruhr, Germany). After a short time as an INSERM Chargé de Recherche at the Bichat Faculty of Medicine in Paris, she moved in 2003 to the University of Bergen to head the service group of the Computational Biology Unit. She was awarded a Starting Grant from the Trond Mohn Foundation in 2009, got tenure in 2013 and became then Professor at the University of Bergen. She teaches applied bioinformatics to molecular biology undergraduates and occasionally molecular modeling to graduate students.
