Kristin Bartik


Professor Kristin Bartik holds a degree in Chemical engineering from the Université libre de Bruxelles (1986), a Master’s degree in Food Science from Cornell University (USA, 1988) and a PhD in Applied Sciences (ULB, 1992), for research undertaken in collaboration with the University of Oxford on the use of NMR to elucidate protein structure. Before being appointed at the ULB, she worked at the Université de Nantes (France). She directs a research group working in the field of physical organic chemistry (molecular recognition).

Kristin was appointed in January 2017, Vice-Rector of the ULB in charge of University Strategy and Institutional Relations. She is currently also Executive Director of the Fondation Philippe Wiener – Maurice Anspach (
