Yasmeen serves as Project Manager for Climate Interactive’s Climate and Energy team where she supports research and community engagement across a range of efforts including En-ROADS, the Climate Scoreboard, and the World Climate Simulation.

She completed a dual Master’s program in Global Environmental Politics & Natural Resources and Sustainable Development at American University in Washington, DC and the University for Peace in Ciudad Colon, Costa Rica. In this program she focused primarily on international climate change issues, particularly climate justice, gender and climate, and the UNFCCC process. She is currently based in the DC area, where she previously worked for several climate policy advocacy nonprofits. Yasmeen has engaged with both domestic and international climate policy efforts, and most enjoys exploring these issues through a justice lens.
