Phoebe received her B.A. in physics from Mount Holyoke College in 2013. During her undergraduate years she worked on various research projects including magnetospheric dynamics, nanowire fabrication, and organic photovoltaics. In the fall of 2013, she started her Ph.D. in Optics in the Electrical Engineering department at CU. During her first few years at CU she worked with Dana Anderson's group at JILA on cold atom systems. Here she had the opportunity to design part of the cold atom laboratory, a multi-user facility for studying fundamental atomic physics that will be sent to the International Space Station (launch date pending). In 2016, she joined the KM group and is studying ultrafast magnetism using an EUV light source. Outside the lab, she loves spending time in the mountains of Colorado; running, hiking, skiing, and climbing.
