Anna Rosenhauer

Wayne State University

Postdoctoral Fellow

Dr. Anna M. Rosenhauer is a post-doctoral fellow working with the Detroit Trauma Project at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. Under the direction of Dr. Tanja Jovanovic, Anna oversees several projects focused on exploring physiological responses to trauma and the biological impact of adversity experienced during development. She received her PhD in neuroscience from Georgia State University studying the effects of social stress and further examined the impact of ovarian hormones on fear conditioning as a post-doctoral researcher with Dr. Ebony Glover. She broadly seeks to understand the biological basis of adaptations to trauma and the physiological interplay between trauma, development, and healing. Anna is passionate about explaining scientific research to survivors and the clinicians who work with them in an easy to understand and applicable format and advocates for the necessity of including lived experience and clinical wisdom in scientific research. In her free time, you can find her practicing yoga, drinking fancy coffee, writing in her journal, or playing with her dog.
