Berta Fernández Rodríguez graduated in Chemistry (Physical Chemistry) at the University of Santiago de Compostela and got the PhD at the same University with the Thesis “Theoretical and structural study of systems with N-C-O units. Ab initio calculations and molecular mechanics force fields”.
She carried out a postdoc with Prof. Joergensen in the Theoretical Chemistry Group at the University of Aarhus (Denmark). After that, she got a position as Associate Professor in the Physical Chemistry Department of the University of Santiago, where now she works as Full Professor.
Her research is based on the highly accurate evaluation of molecular and intermolecular properties and potentials, a field in which she started a new research line at the Physical Chemistry Department (Quantum Chemistry). She is one of the authors of the DALTON quantum chemistry program package.
