Jasmine Hill

PhD Candidate

Stanford University

Jasmine Hill is a Ph.D. candidate in sociology at Stanford University, who is interested in race, class, and social mobility. As a mixed-methods researcher, her work is focused on improving the economic conditions of low-income people of color in the United States and contributing to the theoretical frameworks that describe how racial inequalities persist. Her dissertation aims to shed light on mechanisms creating and prohibiting social mobility, particularly for low-income communities of color. This work interrogates the transformation of the “low-skilled” labor market, as well as beliefs and perceptions of opportunities held by marginalized adults. Jasmine is co-editor of Inequality in the 21st Century with David B. Grusky (Westfield Press, 2017) and she has taught courses on sociological theory, race, and inequality at Stanford University, the University of California, Los Angeles, and Mills College. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in communication studies with honors from the University of California, Los Angeles, and her master’s degree in sociology from Stanford University.
