Before joining UDL, Philip studied the mechanisms of light-induced protein degradation. His research encompassed a wide range of chemical, physical and biological knowledge, such as photochemistry, biological structures and fundamental photophysical processes. The interdisciplinary nature of Philip’s research sparked a desire to broaden his knowledge into the wider chemical and engineering industries.

Philip has a particular interest in the development and application of green technologies, as well as ground-breaking analytical techniques.
