Jasmin studied psychology and graduated with a Master of Science from the University of Edinburgh, UK, in 2013. She gained research experience working in the Jacobs Center on Lifelong Learning at the Jacobs University Bremen, the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, as well as the Horizon Digital Economy Research Institute at the University of Nottingham.
At present, she is a PhD candidate at the Swiss National Center for Affective Sciences (CISA) in Geneva under supervision of Prof Tobias Brosch. Her PhD investigates cognitive-affective factors underlying energy-related decisions and aims at identifying interventions (“nudges”) to mobilize “green” behaviors and consumer decisions. This work is being done in collaboration with Prof David Sander (Director of the CISA), Prof Martin Patel (Institute for Environmental Sciences of the University of Geneva), and the Services Industriels de Gèneve (SIG).
Her research interests center around behavioral economics and choice architecture. More broadly, she enjoys a multidisciplinary research approach and has concern for knowledge transfer. Apart from her professional identity, Jasmin is also a ninja. Always a bit lost in space and time, she wanders around the globe to meet places and people.
