Prior to working at CSU, Jasmine earned a Ph.D. in Animal Science at Penn State University, and an M.S. in Animal Breeding and B.S. in Animal Science at Texas A&M University. As a professor, she works to (1) help animal science students develop systems thinking skills and holistic perspectives on the agricultural systems they will be working with, (2) contribute to the development of tools that quantify multiple aspects of the sustainability of agricultural and food systems, and (3) contribute to the broader discussion about the role of animals in sustainable food systems. Jasmine’s research interests include livestock production systems, sustainability assessment, integrated crop-livestock systems, regenerative agriculture, and food & agriculture policy.
