Jasmine Zhu BS

Jasmine Zhu is a Continuing Education Coordinator at the Center for Community-Engaged Drug Education, Epidemiology and Research (CEDEER) at the University of Washington’s Addictions, Drug & Alcohol Institute (ADAI). Prior to working at ADAI, Jasmine worked as a Research Assistant in several psychology labs at UW, including one looking at reactions to alcohol cues in young adults. Before starting a career in research, Jasmine worked as an elementary school teacher and an account manager in the business sector. In the future, Jasmine is interested in examining how individual’s responses to substance use and other mental health disorders differ based on situational, temporal, biological, and other factors. She is also interested in exploring how heterogeneity in predictors and timing of individual behavior can predict and identify when problems may occur, thus identifying when to provide interventions when they are most needed.
