Heike Gerhardt studied chemistry at the universities of Tübingen and Vienna, already choosing to specialize in analysis during her master’s degree at the University of Vienna. She has worked at the University of Tübingen under Prof. Lämmerhofer since 2012: with her doctoral research work nearly complete, her work largely involves the analysis of adhesive secretions from a wide range of insects. Her work in this field focuses primarily on the identification of hydrocarbons.
