Phoebe studies how self-compassion may help students cope with communication anxiety when they need to give a speech, participate in class discussions, ask questions, and seek help. She has also collaborated on projects to assess the impact of self-compassion interventions on healthcare worker well being, how compassion to the self and others can mitigate conflict experienced during group projects, and comparative employment outcomes between online and in-person degree holders. Her research projects involve mixed-methods (quantitative and qualitative) approaches to understanding education and work-related processes and outcomes.

Phoebe also teaches an introductory educational psychology course that overviews theories of learning and provides practical skills for becoming a successful student. In the community she teaches Mindful Self-Compassion and Yoga.

She is earning her PhD in Educational Psychology at the University of Texas in Austin and will defend her dissertation in April, 2019.
