Arpine Hovasapian

My name is Arpine and I am a second-year PhD student in the Psychology and Social Behavior Department here at UCI. I've lived in Verano a little over a year, and I love the relaxing and friendly vibe we have going here.  My favorite activities include yoga, traveling, teaching and dance. I'm also an active member of the Anteater Tango Club and love going out dancing with my fellow UCI tangueros. My research interests in psychology lie in the areas of emotions and stress. I'm thrilled to be part of the VRC and am looking forward to a fun year at Verano.
