Jasmine’s research explores mechanisms and patterns of contemporary racial and socioeconomic inequality, building from interdisciplinary perspectives on race and stratification. Her dissertation investigates the relationship between legal ownership classifications and wealth accumulation through the case of heirs’ property ownership. Jasmine’s research has also explored attitudes towards reparations in Detroit, inequalities in disaster recovery in the rural South, and the socioeconomic trajectories of U.S. counties after the Great Recession. Before graduate school, Jasmine worked in the Metropolitan Housing and Communities Policy Center at the Urban Institute.
