Hasti A Raveau is a clinical psychology doctoral student at Wayne State University, and a Merrill Palmer Skillman Institute fellow. Her primary research interest is examining the role of trauma on family relationships, and the impact it has on young children's emotional regulation and psychopathology. Through her work with Dr. Erika Bocknek, Hasti is becoming increasingly interested in physiological and biological markers of emotion regulation, such as the oxytocin hormone. She likes to focus her work on at-risk populations, such as military or low-income families. Hasti has been a part of MPSI since 2008, when she was un undergraduate psychology student at WSU.
