Philip studied chemistry at the University of Warwick, United Kingdom, and obtained his master degree in 2015 studying ring-opening polymerisations of macrolactones under the supervision of Prof. Andrew P. Dove. He then undertook a PhD within the Marie Curie EJD-FunMat programme under the supervision of Dr. Christophe Detrembleur (Université de Liège, Belgium) and Prof. Michael Meier (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany). Within this EU-funded program Philip investigated the synthesis of novel copolymers based on renewable resources and ethylene using reversible deactivation radical polymerisation, as well as novel pathways towards the combination of cellulose and industrial polyethylene using renewable compatibilisers.

Philip then joined the Adolphe Merkle Institute in 2019 as a Post-doctoral researcher as part of the NCCR, investigating polymersome-based nanocarriers for drug delivery.
