Heribert Reis obtained his PhD in electrooptical electronic spectroscopy in 1996 from the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany. In 1997 he became a postdoc in the computational chemistry group of Manthos Papadopoulos at the National Hellenic Research Foundation (NHRF) in Athens, Greece, working on the computation of nonlinear optical properties of molecules, nanomaterials and macroscopic phases. In 2005 he became a member of the Scientifc Technical Personnel of the Institute of Organic and Pharmaceutical Chemistry of NHRF and since 2017 he is a Research Scientist at the Institute of Chemical Biology. His scientific interests are the computational modelling of the interactions of bioactive molecules with biomolecules using classical and/or quantum-mechanical methodologies, and the theoretical prediction of electronic spectroscopies and the linear and nonlinear optical properties of molecules, weakly bonded molecular complexes and molecular materials, including the effects of molecular motions. In relation to COSY, he is a member of WG2 and has been appointed as the STSM coordinator. In 2021 he has initiated the publication of a themed collection in Frontiers of Chemistry on “Computational Methods for the Description of Intermolecular Interactions and Molecular Motion in Confining Environments”.
