Jasmine has a background in exercise science (University of Nantes, France & University of Bath, UK) and a PhD in applied physiology/biomechanics from the University of New South Wales (2008). She is Lead of Cognition and Mobility Studies for the NeuRA Falls, Balance & Injury Research Centre.

Her research in ageing and clinical groups with balance impairments combines mechanistic work, longitudinal studies and randomised controlled trials to investigate the control of balance and gait, identify risk factors for falls and mobility decline and develop interventions to improve health outcomes.

 Jasmine is the Communication Manager of the Australia New-Zealand Fall Prevention Society where she sits on the Executive Board. She is also a member of the Scientific Committee of the International Society for Posture & Gait. She is currently co-leading the update of the Australian Best Practice Guidelines for Fall Prevention in Older People.
