DPhil Student, University of Oxford

Jasmin is interested in the psychological barriers to reducing poverty and (wealth) inequality, and the relationship between empathy towards outgroups, moral circle expansion, and attitudes regarding redistribution. Her research hopes to learn about drivers and mitigators of wealth inequality, political polarisation, and segregation. Jasmin's recent work experience at the Busara Center for Behavioural Economics allowed her to design and lead research projects in East Africa (Kenya and Uganda), where she also lived for three years. Under Johannes Haushofer, Jasmin worked on studying the impact of cash transfers on mental health and well-being. Prior to that, she worked with the World Bank Group and as a data scientist for the World Data Lab. After undertaking a B.Sc. in Socio-Economics at the WU Vienna, Jasmin completed an M.A. in Development Economics at Yale University.
