At Challenge Works, Jasmin is programme manager of the Longitude Prize.

Jasmin works on the Longitude Prize – a £10 million prize fund that will reward a team of innovators who develop a diagnostic test that will conserve antibiotics for future generations.

Before Challenge Works, she worked at the Wellcome Trust in several roles, including evaluation, science funding, and programme management.

Jasmin is particularly interested in global health, and holds a degree in the subject. She also recently supported the NIHR-Wellcome Global Health Research partnership through a stint in the Department of Health.

In her spare time, she enjoys travel, cooking, hiking and being by the sea.
