Jasmine Saban is a Research Fellow within Biological Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Jasmine is currently working as a Research Fellow on an NERC/BBSRC funded project studying the role of plasticity in adaptive divergence with Dr Mark Chapman and Dr Tom Ezard.

2019-present, Research Fellow, University of Southampton.

2014-2019, PhD, University of Southampton. Thesis title: Plasticity and adaptation in the multigenerational plant response to rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations.

2009-2013, MSc in Natural Sciences, University of Bath.

Research interests

I have a broad interest in using experimental approaches to study the processes that govern evolution. During my PhD with Professor Gail Taylor I became particularly interested in the role of plasticity and epigenetic inheritance in plant adaptation to climate change. In my current role, working with Dr Mark Chapman, Dr Tom Ezard and Anne Romero on an NERC/BBSRC funded project, we are studying the role of plasticity in adaptive (and non-adaptive) divergence. In this project we are conducting experiments with morphologically diverse Brassica species to dissect the role of plasticity in domestication (as a model for evolution more generally).
