Jana Varena Gerhart
A native of Germany living in the city of Mainz near Wiesbaden and Frankfurt, Jana Gerhart is both scientist and musician. Born in 1992, she received her first cello lessons at the age of six and today holds degrees in instrumental pedagogy and orchestral music from the Peter Cornelius Conservatory in Mainz.
Together with this, Jana has completed a communication science (B.A.) and management (M.Sc.) degree at the Johannes Gutenberg University (JGU) in Mainz, Germany.
Right now, Jana is immersed in studies towards receiving her Doctorate in Management at JGU. She is also working together with several scientists leading innovative research on how individuals are influenced by emotions in their personal goal setting.
An alumna of the Fulbright foundation and a scholarship holder of the “Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volks”, Jana brings to AAlchemy a refined sense for research and planning. These skills are coupled with her compelling understanding of music and its impact on society at large and on people as they experience actual performances.
Listening to Jana playing the cello is a special privilege; our great good fortune is having as a resource her keen understanding of how people react to external stimuli that flow from experiencing the performing arts. (back to Team page)
