Pronouns: she/her
Yasmine graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a BS in Bioengineering, concentrated in medical devices. She also previously worked as a research assistant in the Human Motor Control and Neuromodulation laboratory at Stanford, working on optimizing deep brain stimulation therapies for people with Parkinson’s disease. Yasmine plans to pursue her PhD in Bioengineering in Professor Jamie Zeitzer’s lab, focusing on the intersection between cognitive and behavioral neuroscience, neurotechnology, and engineering. Her interdisciplinary research interests include characterizing both mild and severe brain injury using optimized signal acquisition as well as novel signal processing techniques and computational neuroscience analyses. She is also interested in exploring neuropathological changes associated with repeated brain injury, specifically as it pertains to sleep disturbance, fatigue, neurodegeneration, and emotional and cognitive dysfunction. Yasmine’s eventual goal is that this quantitative-focused work will better inform clinical diagnosis and treatment of traumatic brain injury. Outside of lab, Yasmine enjoys swimming, running, watching football, and exploring new coffee and ice cream shops.
