Environmental and Climate Sciences
After graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill with degrees in environmental science and mathematics, Jasmine worked for two years as a Post Bachelor Research Associate in the Environmental Sciences Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. While there, she contributed to the Sustainability Volume of DOE’s Billion Ton 2016 Report. Specifically, she worked on a spatial optimization framework to allocate conservation practices to maximize bioenergy production and water quality at a regional scale. Jasmine also collaborated on a biodiversity assessment for the entire U.S. to determine the effects of bioenergy production on species habitat.
Outside of scientific pursuits, Jasmine enjoys reading, spending time outside, and playing the piano. She is also interested science outreach and promoting women in STEM.
Jasmine is eager to blend her two passions–math and environmental science–in her graduate studies. Specifically, she is interested in applying mathematical models to the climate system, because the pressing issues of climate change aside, understanding the climate and how it is changing is a relevant issue that has far reaching effects that touches the life of every individual inhabiting this planet.
