Jarmin Yeh has been affiliated with the UCSF Institute for Health and Aging since 2010. Her research intersects three strands of sociological study: gerontology, science and technology studies, and social inequalities.

Her teaching experiences include courses on research methods, global healthcare policy, evidence-based project planning, collaboration and communication in inter-professional healthcare practice, and sociology of aging.
