Jasmine is DDRI (Data Driven Research and Innovation) PhD Student in the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations at Coventry University. She completed an undergraduate degree in Economics and Planning at the University of Birmingham, and her dissertation focused on evaluating an age-friendly city. For her master’s degree in Health Economics also at the University of Birmingham, her project focused on quality of life and wellbeing indicators.
For her PhD, Jasmine is aiming to explore communities of support within care environments in order tackle the issues of social isolation and loneliness in later life. This aligns with her research interest of helping to improve the quality of life and wellbeing that is experienced by those in the later stages of their life.
The first phase of her research will involve doing interviews to understand more about the care environment. She will also be evaluating the communal facilities in the care home that could potentially provide a place for communities of support to grow and flourish.
