Jasmine Mason (bachelor’s degree in geology; 2012) is currently pursuing a doctoral degree at the Jackson School of Geosciences, the University of Texas at Austin. Jasmine graduated from UC Berkeley in Spring 2012. She firmly believes that her undergraduate training at UC Berkeley gave her a solid base for graduate studies; her broad liberal arts background coupled with training in math and physics made the transition to graduate school relatively manageable, in her perspective.
Jasmine is now a fourth-year PhD student, working with Professor David Mohrig studying sediment transport and fluvial geomorphology. She thrives in the tight-knit community of the Jackson School, where she bounces ideas off of other experts and collaborates extensively with the various professors and research scientists in every sub-field within the geosciences.
