Philip graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2016 with a BSc in Geography. He then joined the University of Exeter in September of the same year to begin working on a PhD based in Cornwall with the Medical School.

Philip’s research interests have grown from a concern regarding the natural environment, including people’s interactions with it, and similarly, how the surrounding environment influences people’s health, which was the basis of his undergraduate dissertation; ‘The relationship between green space and very bad health in Liverpool’.
