Jasmin is a dual concentrator in transportation and design & development at the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Urban Studies and Planning from UC San Diego and has spent some time assisting the redevelopment agencies (City of San Diego and Los Angeles) in the past. She is now interested in the nexus of economic development, transportation, and design—in particular, how transit-oriented developments can be enhanced with better design and identifying the type of urban street design guidelines that help protect pedestrians from pedestrian-automobile injuries. Apart from these specific interests, she is also interested in researching any parking issues from around the globe, as she is a Shoupista after all! Following graduation, she would like to work in Washington D.C. as a policy researcher, planner, or a consultant for an organization that helps create a more sustainable transportation planning and urban developments.
